If two-column procedures is the goal, I'd use side heads. See attached
MIF for a basic method.

Hi all,
So, whilst I search the archives, can we have a live discussion on the
pros and cons of using tables for tech writing content. Consider a
traditional procedure that uses step: in the left column, the action,
and in the right column, the result. It seems, for Word, each row needs
to be numbered manually.
Conversely, there is standard ordered list approach without using a
table.
Thoughts?
Sean
