You  probably read too quickly:   the text in  the page  (at least for
0.12.2) states  that Det is a syntactic  variable that  stands for any
determinism (e.g. det,  multi, nondet, ...),  just as Goal stands  for
any goal, etc...

But I agree  with you, being a newcomer  myself, that improving  error
messages would make life easier for newbie-debugging :-)
