Re: Document preparation help


DocBook can handle this. Go to http://www.docbook.org and click on the TDG
link. You read about tables there.

You know what? Consumerism works. You don't believe me? Who is the largest 
single ISP in the world? AOL (That would be America Online). Why? Because it
is, "easy," "five minutes and you're up!", "IM (Instant Messaging) is 
Awesome!". Yes, it makes me want to grab the nearest trash can and pray very
loudly into it. Consumerism works, it works well and it is taking the market 
by storm.
