Multiple paragraphs, lists, and blockquotes? Not much I think.

But multiple lines would probably be much more useful. This was the 
primary intent of my proposition. Something like this:

	Company                 Description
	Apple Computer inc.     The maker of the Macintosh, iPod,
	                        Quicktime and Firewire.
	Microsoft               No need for a description.

I just stripped the last row from my last example.
