Maxim,

sorry about that.

again, i apologize.  my confusion was in not having read the text to
understand that the "(Org >= 9.5)" was the default.  i assumed it meant,
"this is the behavior for Org >= 9.5", even though that meant the tables
really didn't make sense.  if you wanted to compensate for such a "user
feature" :), maybe remove "(Org >= 9.5)", and add that information as a
short "NB:" line after each table?

sorry, i should have caught *both* "relatively".  i'd suggest

> a. "do not indent anything",
>    "always indent relative to the element above",
>    "indent just ~PROPERTIES/LOGBOOK~ drawers relative
>    to the current heading level"

which klings better to my ears.  (sadly, i can't explain any grammatical
reason why, though.)

cheers, Greg
