Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Variablelist with run-in terms?

Hi Steffan,
This can certainly be done with a customization.  Lucky for you, there are
already two ways for formatting variablelists, so adding a third way can be
done by copying and modifying.

Take a look in fo/lists.xsl at how variablelist template uses the dbfo
list-presentation processing-instruction to select the format. In addition
to the values of "list" and "blocks", you could add "run-in".  Then add
templates in a new "vl.as.run-in" mode to format it the way you want.  The
mode that is closest to what you want is mode="vl.as.blocks".   Instead of
two blocks, use one block, with the term processed before the listitem.

> Hello,
> I'd like the terms of a variablelist to run into the content of the
listitems. Like so:
> TERM_1 This is the content of the listitem

> TERM_2 This is another listitem.
> Is that possible? Should I use another docbook-element to achieve this
result more easily?
