Send a table in an email.

I have this need as well. I send emails with completed tickets that have table data. What I have done in the past is use fixed length data padded with spaces, then I send the email in a monospaced font. Having the ability to send an email as html formatted text would be great, but last time I attempted it, it does not get received as html displayed, but only as the html itself.
Watching thread with interest.
