The Texinfo export back-end by default converts description lists in the Org file using the default command ‘
@table’, which results in a table with two columns. To change this behavior, set ‘
:table-type’ attribute to either ‘
ftable’ or ‘
vtable’ value. For more information, see (texinfo)Two-column Tables.
The Texinfo export back-end by default also applies a text highlight based on the defaults stored in
org-texinfo-table-default-markup. To override the default highlight command, specify another one with the ‘
Org syntax is limited to one entry per list item. Nevertheless, the Texinfo export back-end can split that entry according to any text provided through the ‘
:sep’ attribute. Each part then becomes a new entry in the first column of the table.
The following example illustrates all the attributes above:
#+ATTR_TEXINFO: :table-type vtable :sep , :indic asis
- foo, bar :: This is the common text for variables foo and bar.

:enum’ attribute also let you start the list at a specific number, or switch to a lettered list, as illustrated here
#+ATTR_TEXINFO: :enum A
