Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: More on several lines in a table cell

I am trying to place a postal address into a table cell.  I have tried a variety
of things, all of which leave me with (as near as I can tell) a single line
that wraps as many times as necessary in order to fit within the width of
the cell.

I have tried a <para> with <address> markup, a <para> without markup, a
<literallayout> without markup, morerows="n".  None of these has produced
adequate results.  Is there anyone that can provide me with some guidance?
I have provided a couple of examples below....

City, State  Zip</para></entry>

City, State  Zip</literallayout></entry>


<entry morerows="5"><para>Name
City, State  Zip
