Subject: Re: [docbook] Defintion list

Hi Aidan,

If I understand correctly, I think what you want is the
Variablelist element, like this:

      <listitem><para>Some description for a and b</para></lisitem>
      <listitem><para>Some description for c</listitem>

that by default that will display as:

  a, b
    Some description for a and b

    Some description for c

I think. Anyway, there is a parameter you can set to toggle it
between being rendered as a list or as in table form.

There is no parameter for having the word "and" rendered between
"a" and "b". It just generates a comma-separated list of the
terms. Which seems like what you'd want, in most cases.
