Hi Ray,

I hav rewritten this to be something that should work.

(The most important change was changing the name="tolTKwrong" to name="tol")

*IMPORTANT* the name field is the _internal_name_ used to identify
information, tolerances _must_ be stored with a name="tol", sigfigs
_must_ be stored with name="sig"

(Let me know if the variable default works, that might or might not.)
(It is might work in a non intuitave manner, I'd test with a fixed
tol, and then try the variable out)

<numericalresponse answer="$ans" unit="J/g/K" format="1E">
	<responseparam name="tol" type="tolerance" description="Numerical Tolerance" default="$tolans" />
	<responseparam name="sig" type="int_range,0-16" default="0,15" description="Significant Figures" />
 	<textline />

		<numericalhint answer="$TKwrongans" unit="J/g/K" format="1E" name="TKwrong">
    			<responseparam name="tol" type="tolerance"  description="tolerance on answer to trigger numerical hint"  default="$tolTKwrongans" />
		<hintpart on="TKwrong">
    			<startouttext />
				The conditional hint text would go here. 
			<endouttext />
		<hintpart on="default">
	 		<startouttext />
				The general hint text goes here.
		 	<endouttext />
