    Is there any reason why you're using tabs rather than spaces?

    Last time I did something similar to what you're trying to accomplish here, I just padded the content of each cell in the table with spaces until the size reached the width in characters of the containing column. If you want something to be left-aligned within a column, you add spaces to the right, and for right-alignment you add spaces to the left.

    Below shows how this would look in a plain text email client:

    Item                           Quantity      Total
    Blue Widget                          21      10.40
    Green Widget                          4       6.20
    Flourescent Widget                    3       1.20
    Apologies if I've completed missed the point.

      I like that.
