I've pared down the mydefs file to two lines, to make sure that
nothing else is interacting; mydefs is down to two lines:

import @BasicSetup
def @Charm { @SubSection }

I know I should be using a macro for a simple substitution, but I
eliminated all of the functionality of the definition in order to make
sure it was really a scope problem. In addition, Basser Lout fails on
the third line of my source file, with the first three lines reading:

@SysInclude{ diag }
@SysInclude{ tbl }
@SysInclude{ doc }

Also, I've tried the same thing with other symbols, like
@BeginSubSection, @Section, and @BeginSection, and none of them are
recognized either. I don't have a copy of the error in front of me,
but with the above mydefs, the "unknown or misspelt" error is the only
one that occurs, other than a notice stating that the pass terminated
on line 3 of ma.lt. As a final caveat, I should note that I'm using
the Win32 binary distribution.

Thank you for all your help and consideration.
