Now I think I'm in the right place.
I'm not sure about "S_AND_T style". Is that in the dropdown list under
"Input file". I can't find it in mine.
My original conversion used CSV with the results below.
I tried re-arranging the columns as you suggest below and using tab
delimiters, but I didn't find a corresponding format in the dropdown list.
I can't find the /style subdirectory or the readme.style file. I'm feeling
a little slow here.

I suspect you'd get better answers if you asked on gpsbabel-misc
and told us which format you're using. Assuming you're using the
CSV style, the problem is that it doesn't support the description
Try using the S_AND_T style, which is tab-separated and should
look rather like this:
Aldama 29.56092 -105.92016 Intersection
Chihuahua 28.64047 -106.07441 Downtown
Note, too, the subtle difference in the coordinates: GPSBabel
mostly expects plain numbers unless you're using a custom style
(which isn't possible with the less full-featured GUI.)
