comment how to manage xml fragments in fme
Our chief XML-ologist took a look, duplicated what you have above, and found no problem. So I guess you'll need to definitely send it in to the support team for further analysis.

comment FME - calculating distance to points along a line
I think we'd need to see a bit more of the source data to help (in particular I'm not clear on the difference between the vertices and the points). You could also send the workspace/data to Safe Support for us to look at (safe.com/supportrequest). Mark it FAO Mark Ireland and it'll be assigned to me.

Make sure you are using FME Workbench (and not just the FME Quick Translator)

comment FME - Raster Algebra and Multicriteria Analysis
Did you get this working? If not, I wonder if breaking the expression down and building from scratch would help to identify where the problem lies. For example, start with "if(A[0]==0,0,1)" then maybe "if(A[0]==0,0,B[0])" and so on. Then you'd at least be able to find what part is causing the issue. My money is on either the weighting part causing a problem, or something later in the workspace.

comment FME converter from DWG to Openlayers supported format
Maybe a good idea to get in touch with the support team (safe.com/support), send them your data, and ask them to check it out. They'll be glad to help.
