The description is intended to be quite small. You can add more detail by 
uploading an HTML file with the same name as the contribution, at which 
point a 'More Detail' link will automatically appear next to the name of the 
object in the search results. I'd be happy to upload such a file for any 
existing entries.

For example, the 'Netball' entry includes a very simple HTML file called 
'netball.html' that lists all of the settings that can be used with the 
macro. The 'netball.html' file is at 
http://lib.povray.org/collection/netball/chrisb%201.0/netball.html. Feel 
free to take a copy and hack it around in a text editor to suit your needs 
if you want. Note that all file names get translated to lowercase when you 
upload them and the server is case sensitive, so, if you incorporate images 
you'll need to consistently use lowercase in the IMG tag.

Regards,
Chris B.
