The following is created after GEDCOM export by one of the programs I use. Behold does not flag it as error or warning.

1 NAME Shown as First Middle Last on First2 Middle2 Last2's Marriage Record, NSW BDM 1891/999.
2 DATE 01 JAN 1891
2 PLAC Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

However, one of the other programs does, with:

Warning : Unknown level 2 tag (skipped).
2 DATE 01 JAN 1891
Warning : Unknown level 2 tag (skipped).
2 PLAC Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

It appears it does not like the Date and Place as a level 2 within NAME.

How do you see this? I cannot find anything in the 5.5 specs.

Brett,

The DATE and PLAC tag are not allowed under a NAME tag. In GEDCOM, look up the PERSONAL_NAME_STRUCTURE.

Behold doesn't yet check for tags in improper places. That check will be added when I do GEDCOM export and include a "perfect" GEDCOM 5.5.1 validator with it.
