Hi, Vivian!

The tool preserves tables built on tabs in Office, if that is your concern.  
tables where appropriate are allowable, even desirable.

The general reference for replacing tabs with a space is as in the beginning of 
paragraphs and copyright page.  Another mutually agreed upon allowable 
exception, to make a TOC more readable, if you don't want to make it a table, 
to use an ellipsis between chapter name and page number.  That may have been 
decided after the last manual revision by common consensus.

Most of the people I know like the TOC as a table for ease of viewing, but not 
everyone wants to do that much work.  Its easy for me and easier for me to 
proof, so I make it a table.  After all, it is a TABLE of contents, right? 

Keep up with Nichole's recovery:

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] question on formatting


How do I handle a table in the body of the book? Can I use a table format used 
for the table of contents? I have several lists in the body of the book, that 
the columns should be lined up. The manual says that tabs will be converted to 
single space.
