Hi Stephane,
you should better write

  <define-tag endtag=required footer>

This `alternative' syntax is preferred since WML 1.7.3 in order to
prevent macro expansion problems.
Indeed, what does <<Footer>> mean with old syntax?  It may be a dump or
<Footer> inside brackets.

Well, this means that mp4h is not able to find </footer>.
When a container tag is defined, it must have an end tag.

In wml-SNAP, one can also write <footer/> when body is empty.
