OK, fair point - maybe I should have investigated further before posting.

Also, the version of the Foundation demo I was using did have a bare

[error all=1 hide=1 comment="Clear errors"]

in checkout.html, but in recent releases this error tag now appears to be
wrapped in a [seti] tag, so it doesn't display anything any longer:

[seti clear_errors][error all=1 hide=1 comment="Clear errors"][/seti]

Thanks for your reply.
