comment Eliminate space at end of list in a table
Thanks, that did it. This does yield some more confusion, as the m and p styles are documented as being (roughly) equivalent to a \parbox, but this must be a piece excluded by 'roughly equivalent'?

comment Eliminate space at end of list in a table
@Philippe I had suspected that the \par was the issue. I'd tried to suppress \par with the \@noparlisttrue, but there was still one \par emitted. How can I suppress \par's whitespace? Putting \setlength\parskip{0pt} before \begin or right before \end don't do it.
