[PATCH 2/2] doc/sexp-queries: replace definition lists with block quotes.

Subject: [PATCH 2/2] doc/sexp-queries: replace definition lists with block quotes.

Date: Mon, 11 Oct 2021 09:56:15 -0300

To: notmuch@notmuchmail.org

From: David Bremner

This document contains meaningful markup in the terms, which makeinfo
complains about. Replace the use of definition lists with regular
paragraphs containing quote blocks. This is accomplished by splitting
the "term" from the definition with a blank line.
