Is it possible to use a table in a post to make columns line up neatly?

For instance: If I want to list something like this:

Date Weight Change TotalChange
3/21 216.5 -.1 -.1
3/28 216.2 -.3 -.4

... can I get the columns to line up nice?

I tried what I thought would work, but it doesn't seem to:

DateWeightChangeTotalChange3/21216.5-.1-.13/28216.2-.3-.4

Any tips?

If you have a high tolerance for inelegance, try:
Date Weight Change TotalChange
3/21 216.5 -.1 -.1
3/28 216.2 -.3 -.4
That was created by
Date Weight Change TotalChange
3/21 216.5 -.1 -.1
3/28 216.2 -.3 -.4

I aligned the columns using Notepad's fixed width font. The spaces in my input don't show above which demonstrates that even when using Courier font, spaces are compressed.

I wish your Table example worked, but I've never found a way to do that.

Good luck.

Yep, exactly what I did. It looked like this in notepad:


Date Weight Change TotalChange
3/21 216.5 -.1 -.1
3/28 216.2 -.3 -.4
