Subject: Source block returns error before first headline
Date: Tue, 01 May 2012 06:56:47 -1000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <m18vhbet68.fsf@tsdye.com> (raw)

Aloha all,

I have a source code block that returns LaTeX results that should be
placed before the first headline.  The source block works correctly *if*
if is placed after a headline, but if I place it before the headline it
fails with Invalid read syntax: "#"

I'm enclosing an excerpt, but will work up an ECM if this is necessary.

All the best,

---Excerpt ----

* Shouldn't need this heading

This paper provides a sample of a LaTeX document which resembles the
style of original ACM LaTeX template ``Option 1: LaTeX2e - Strict
Adherence to SIGS style''. The focus on this template is the usage
with Emacs Org-mode. Therefore the content is reduced to a minimum.
