Jerilynne,

Very thorough instructions!  But there's a way to avoid *any* extra 
space for the container pgf:  set its Space Below to a negative number, 
and set the Table's Space Above to the same negative number.  The table 
will overlap the containing pgf exactly, without even a 2-pt gap.

The negative number can be any value as long as its absolute value is 
larger than the font size of the containing pgf.

This method has the second advantage of leaving the containing pgf's 
pilcrow symbol visible (a 2-pt pilcrow is not).  You can set a font 
colour for the containing pgf as well, to make the pilcrow stand out 
even more -- very useful when the pgf is empty.

Best regards,

Lucy: Charlie Brown, life is like a deck chair on a cruise ship. 
Passengers open up these canvas deck chairs so they can sit in the sun. 
Some people place their chairs facing the rear of the ship so they can 
see where they've been. Other people face their chairs forward -- they 
want to see where they're going. On the cruise ship of life, which way 
is your deck chair facing?

Charlie Brown: "I've never been able to get one unfolded."
