 >> I've seen before that <pre> doesn't mix real well with tables.

You can say that again Joe.  I think Simon has hit it on the head with his
post.  The darned <pre> tag causes the equivalent of a <br> at the end of
the block and that's what messes the thing up.  I tried to wrap a number of
rows into the <pre> block but that doesn't help.  The first line works
beautifully but the browser effectively inserts a </pre> at the end of the
row and so all subsequent rows lose the <pre> attribute.

Unless someone can tell me that style sheets offer me a formatting option
that will deal with this, I'm just going to have to give up and replace
every blasted space with an &nbsp.  Bummer - it all looked so simple when I
started out!!

Thanks to all for their help on this.
