Subject: hdtbl.tmac-u: String variable 't*kept' is not defined when used

troff: warning: macro 't*kept' not defined
./contrib/hdtbl/hdmisc.tmac:180: backtrace: macro 't*EM'
../contrib/hdtbl/examples/common.roff:290: backtrace: trap-invoked macro 'EM'

  From the file "contrib/hdtbl/hdtbl.tmac-u"

.        ds t*kept \\*[t*kept] t*tbl\\n[t*numb] \\n[dn]\"

.      ds t*kept \\*[t*kept] t*tbl\\n[t*numb] \\n[*]\"

The request '.as' is the right one to use here.

  Also used in line

.      ds t*kept \\n[*] \\*[t*kept]\"
