I didn't get any answers on this question, but initial testing (as
well as a close parsing of some of the docs)  seems to indicate
that the declarations are local to a sitemap.


I was getting invalid continuation errors on testing some flowscript
after I added a link for the continuation to a sendPageAndWait() page.

In the parent sitemap, I have a match for '**/*.kont' , which calls
the continuation.

I changed that to match on '*.kont' , as well as previously adding
the same to the child sitemap. ( Initially just adding it, before
changing the parent match didn't fix the problem -- the parent sitemap
catching it seems to be what makes it invalid! )

Now it works, however that change has broken some previously working
stuff that seems to require keeping some relative path info in the
continuation uri's. ( Perhaps I can fix that by using an HTML <BASE>
instead, but I think there was a problem with propagating that value
to other generated content. )

So it appears that the continuation uri must resolve back to the same
sitemap that originated the initial flowscript call. ( Or: is the
problem only going upstream ? Will it work parent-to-child, but not
child-to-parent ? )

( Parent and child sitemaps all have the same scripts listed in the  
<map:flow> block. )

Can anyone confirm that this is correct ?
Or is there some other source for the problems I'm seeing.

[ Any other tips on understanding the flowscript processing model  
will be appreciated. ]
