remove italics from align

\begin{align*}
P2P &- Peer-to-Peer Network\\
%.....
\end{align*}


I have a Abbreviation page in my PDF. For aligning all the '-' I am using align*. All the content inside align shows up in italics. How do I make the content inside align appear normal and not italic?

amsmath provides \text{...} for text-related content, which this clearly is. You may also consider tabular as an alternative. –  Werner Feb 12 '13 at 7:54
How do I align inside a \text after every '-' ? –  user494461 Feb 12 '13 at 7:56
To have a list of acronyms you might also consider the nomencl package. –  mafp Feb 12 '13 at 8:07

Environment align(*) is a math-related environment. You should use a tabular environment: with the header as below, you will probably get what you want.

\begin{tabular}{l@{ --- }l}
P2P & Peer-to-Peer Network\\
%.....
\end{tabular}


If your list becomes longer than one page, consider using package longtable or similar.
