Usign the following piece of code:
(height    (measurement-to-length (attribute-string "depth" nd)))
  (width     (measurement-to-length (attribute-string "width" nd)))

If you have <graphic fileref..... width="2.3cm" depth="4.5cm"> (values
doesn't matter)  in your document, the
variables "height" and "width" get incorrect values, unless you make the
changes in the associative list. Then you get the right values for this

Am I doing something wrong here? :-(

I use Jade, not OpenJade.
