# [XeTeX] Runaway argument in babel and longtable?

Mon Oct 27 12:07:18 CET 2008

```Hi!

I have this script creating a long table which have been working until
some of the recent changes. Now it's producing the following output:

Runaway argument?
! Forbidden control sequence found while scanning use of
\language at active@arg".
<inserted text>
\par
l.17 餐 &
jídlo \tabularnewline

I have been trying to google the issue up a little, but with no success.
Does anyone around here have an idea where it might come from? Attached
is the (reduced) input to still produce this error.
