To Enter a Lablist

A lablist is a two column list with optional column headings.

    To create a labeled list without headings, use the <lablist> element as shown:

<lablist spacing>
     \ label 1\ item 1  text
     \ label 2\ item 2  text
     \ label N\ item N  text

Where spacing is loose (default) or tight.

<lablist tight>
\Chapter 1\ An Overview of the System
\Chapter 2\ Installing the Operating System
\Chapter 3\ Configuring the Desktop
\Appendix A\ System Commands Quick Reference

The output is:
