I have a request to create a table *like* entry in Writer that would look
like this:

Revision      Date      Author

so that if done, it would look sort of like this: (Newest on top).

V1.4           21-July-80        Fred Farkle
       Long verbose description of all the brilliant changes put back in..
V1.3           20-Jul-80          Peter Pickle
       Deleted long verbose descriptions put in by Fred "Purple Prose"
V1.2           19-July-80        Fred Farkle
       Added long verbose description of all the brilliant changes put back
       (Multiple lines of content here.)

I did it and passed it back for the other person to go on with. BUT, I
started wondering if there's a "better" way to do such a thing.

I thought one method using "Paragraph Styles" to do the work but it seems
like the wrong tool for the job.

I considered a table but it doesn't seem to fit the task either.

The PITA is the long description below the entry line.

So I'm wondering how, without changning the required format, how would you
make such a thing in a Writer document?

A) I'm asking to learn.
B) I'm asking to stir the collective discussions.
C) See if anyone has a solution that is unique. :)

Thanks everyone for the use of your electrons.
