<cd:description><!-- Make the margins wider on the left, the right, or (default) both sides. The default value is 5 mm; use {{cmd|setupnarrower}} to change it, or use the long description parameters of {{cmd|startnarrow}}. Using <code>\startnarrower[left=2cm]</code> does not work. By preceding the command goes here -argument with a negative sign (eg. <code>\startnarrower[<tt>-2*left</tt>]</code>) the text area can be made wider rather than narrower.
