# [texhax] table formatting problem

Sat Apr 2 05:45:04 CEST 2005

hi;

i have a table that has way too many lines and it cannot fit on one
page, it does not show the table over two pages it just chops the lower
part and as a matter of fact it continue until the end of the page
without leaving any margins.  How can i have the same table show over
multiple pages?

The code am using is as follows:
\begin{table}[hang]
\centering
\caption{XXX}

\begin{tabular}{|l|p{5in}|}
\hline
\textbf{\bf Message}  & {\bf Description}\\ \hline
\hline
.
my text is going here in.
.

\end{tabular}
\label{tab:XXX}
\end{table}

thanks
