Hi Norm,
yuck is right! I actually did try that. even though it works, it is
just so wrong I couldn't live with myself. I think I'll set things up
so they can optionally title the list (converts to
variablelist/info/title). Then they can use nested lists if they like.

thanks for giving it some thought.
Sometimes going from LaTeX to DocBook is a really strange trip.
