Oh, that's a big problem with lengthy TOC or List of Illustrations found in some PG ebooks
Yes, I agree. I struggled with this for over a month when doing the Table of Illustrations for Little Women. I wanted a centered numbered list. No way to do this without auto-margins or a centered inline element, and the inline element won't break. Makes me crazy!!
Also keep in mind that some people choose a really big font.
One last keep in mind: I use inline-table because inline-block is not part of the OPS standard. Even though it works in ADE, I suggest avoiding it. It might not work on some readers, or future readers that are more strict. Oddly, inline-block passes ePubCheck.
