Hi Henning,
Well, it depends what you were actually trying to do.

If you are trying to show an isosurface at level 2.3, you do not want "style solid" ... instead should be "style surface"

If you are really trying to show a transparent "solid," however, as the message says, the "level" cannot be just one number, it should be two numbers separated by a comma.

I hope this helps,
