Maybe I am doing something terribly wrong; however, in order to space
the items where needed I am using the "\hspace{}" directive. If I place
the "\hrulefill" command prior to that command, I get the item printed,
then a line, then a space equal to the hspace setting, then the next
item plus line plus space. Everything is justified across the page. I
do not want that.
