zero-width column boundaries?

Anyone know of a way to make column boundaries using the vGrid property 
but which aren't visible?

I have some fields in which most of the content is just plain blocks of 
text, but a part of it contains tabular data.  Getting it to line up 
properly on both platforms has been problematic, as some of the cell 
contents run flush to the next column, and the differences in font 
metrics make for unpredictable differences between developing on one 
platform and deploying on another.

I've thought about turning on the vGrid, but although it solves the 
problem for the tables it puts visible lines through the blocks of plain 

I may just have to go with breaking the text into multiple fields, but 
this is a last resort as it would greatly complicate the architecture of 
the software.

Any suggestions welcome....
