Thanks for your reply. I got a nice result (in text and HTML) with:

\details{

   The model is:\cr
   \tabular{lll}{

     \tab • \tab \eqn{y | \lambda ~ Binomial(n, \lambda)}, with
                 \eqn{\lambda ~ Beta(S1, S2)},\cr
     [snip]
     }

   [snip]
   }

What would be a solution "in the spirit of layout languages" ?

Best,

Renaud
