Just a guess, but could this be due to your table cell defaulting to a
proportional font?   Or are you possibly not ending each line of output
with a 'break' tag <BR> (forcing a newline?)  IIRC, without a <BR> or
<P> tag, the text simply flows together. 

If you're not already, you might try wrapping your imported data with
the 'preformatted' tags... <PRE>  
table data here
