Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] how to force some line spacing

If you're using a CSS stylesheet (for HTML output), you can specify a margin for all ordered list items in your output:

ol li { margin-bottom: 1.5in; }

The potential drawback is that ALL ordered list items will have this margin.  You won't be able to choose by list or by item using this method.
