Specifically - when there is no data in the compound object, the
abstract page still displays the table-headings - so you end up with a
1-row table, showing no data
I want to replace that table with some helpful text :)
I've just tried the <epc:choose> - no difference
(and I chose "creator" as my compound field is a bespoke one.... the
compound field 'broker' could just confuse people un-necessarily)
