t'" will help you line up your data in the horizontal plane, "valign" is for vertical alignment in the table cell. My bad.

Thanks, code-gnomes! I'm on deadline, so the fancy chart might not come until tomorrow....

You could also avoid a lot of the fuss by using the pre (preformatted text) tag.

As J. Luke says, the easiest charts are done using the PRE tag. This forces browsers (even old ones) into a mono-spaced font, so you can make everything line up the way you want to. Make sure to include the line breaks you want, since it won't add any in the PRE section.

I think you can include Bold and Italic formatting within PRE, but not other Font changes.

Just bear in mind that if you do the table as a gif then it will be very hard for search engines or screen readers to make sense of the data.

A little basic html for you people since you haven't been keeping up to date. There is no need to use </tr> and </td> in your tables. To verify your html meets the real standard (as opposed to the incorrect Microsoft standard), use the W3C validator. BTW, Matt, your blog page fails miserably.
