In fact the matrix trick is so painful that with tongue

raw troff would be simpler:

shortid = expression1
longidentifier = expression2

When I try (the non-indented) version of this

        .S 14 16
        shortid ~ mark = ~ expression1
        longidentifier ~ lineup = ~ expression2

with 'groff -mm', it does exactly what I think you want. Sorry, I hate the default spacing around the equal sign so I always add one either side! I do not think I am doing anything special.

Doug, I have attached the PDF which should reach you but I am unsure as to whether that makes it through to the mailing list.
