glossary.as.blocks — Present glossarys using blocks instead of lists?
If non-zero, glossarys will be formatted as blocks.
If you have long glossterms, proper list markup in the FO case may produce unattractive lists. By setting this parameter, you can force the stylesheets to produce block markup instead of proper lists.
You can override this setting with a processing instruction as the child of glossary: <?dbfo glossary-presentation="blocks"> or <?dbfo glossary-presentation="list">
