If you don't need the fields to vary once set, you can just use the
tabStops, e.g.
  set the tabStops of fld "MyList" to "100,150,300,320,400"
will produce columns with widths 100, 50, 150, 20 and 80 with all
extra columns also being width 80.

If you need the column widths to be variable, then you need Chipp's
altFldHeader plugin which you can get from here:
Follow the links to altPlugins -> Downloads and you'll find it near
the bottom of the page.
