Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Tabular presentation of segmented lists

Title: Re: [docbook-apps] Tabular presentation of segmented lists
Thanks Bob.  I'd never used a segmented list before, so thought I'd give it a try.  I tested both a variable list and a table and found the table best.

Hi Ron,
If it is two columns, you might consider using a variablelist instead. It is designed for this purpose.  It will automatically try to adjust the first column to fit the data, and it provides a processing instruction for the left width in case you need to override it. For more information, see:
What's missing is segtitle.  You might have to fake that.  8^)
There is always <table> too, with frame="none" and colsep="0" and rowsep="0".
