   Okay, you got me. :)  I really don't know much about the formatting
side of DSSSL.  I was lucky on the bulletted item thing, having looked
at some examples before.  I could tell you how to do this in TeX, but
I don't think that would be too helpful, here. :)
   This seems like a simple enough task, but having looked over the
flow objects section of the DSSSL standard, the only thing I can find
which might be useful (emphasis on "might") would be the included
container area object, which Jade doesn't support. :(
   Anyone else (more familiar with formatting) have any ideas?

-Brandon :)
