Yeah, I thought it would be nice to get it there. But since stylesheets
are supposed to do all that, maybe it isn't such a good idea after all.

Yeah, well, it goes. What I am looking for is really just a way to make a
list more compact, and one way is to do a lot of tables. I don't think
that is simple. I haven't read too much about stylesheets yet, but all the
power there... Guess you could do it as well. But considering, all I
wanted was a compact list, and all this trouble... Just format=compact
would satisfy me.

Anyway, the keyword attribute to <A> was really my main concern, but since
most of the stuff I suggested could be done with style-sheets nobody seems
to have noticed....
