[texhax] table and page break

Tue Jan 3 12:19:39 CET 2012

Hey,

For a cooperative latex document with a lot of authors, it was decided to use tables for certain structures. Therefore, I have to cope with the problem of automatic page breaks of tables that only consist of 1 column and several rows. The column often contain different lists. The attached example shows the problem: The table does not break within a list. Is there a way to work around this issue?
