[EP-tech] Re: epc:if tests for the existence of values in a compound field

I'm writing a citation schema, and when it comes to compound fields, I
don't want to have a table with just the column headings.

I tried

        <epc:if test="creator"><epc:print expr="creator" /></epc:if>
        <epc:if test="!(creator)"><epc:phrase ref="eprint_field_nodata"

... but this doesn't seem to work

(and yes, I've restarted the server..... but that shouldn't make a
difference for a generate-static)

I'm getting no errors from the xml file, and if I add in a sneaky <hr />
them that appears in the re-built page.

How do I avoid rendering these empty tables?

I've ended up using a combination of Adam's <epc:choose> and Gilles' test="is_set(f00)"

Works in both Eprints 3.2 & 3.3

Thanks all...
