Hi Yves,

Sorry to disappoint you, but you can only set one
alignment for the entire table. So :
- either you use a fixed-width font and make sure the
data is padded with spaces to the left,
- or you'll have to break up the field into multiple
fields, each handling a column, and then you get all
the fun of maintaining the same hilitedLines, etc.

If you need a hand with that, I'm sure we can help.
