OK, I may have a solution.

But, you've got to use Netscape 6.

That probably kills this solution, doesn't it.

Here it is anyway:

Use this stylesheet: (named jon.css)
/********/
P{
 background-color:Aqua;
}
 TD
{
 font: 15px monospace;
 white-space: pre;
}
/********/

and this html (jon.htm) from Anton:

/*********/
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>Jon</TITLE>
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="jon.css">
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<TABLE>
<P> Following is some data:</p>
  <TR>
    <TD>Heading</TD></TR>
  <TR>
    <TD>1  3        5</TD></TR>
  <TR>
    <TD>12345678901234567890</TD></TR>
  <TR>
    <TD>JK LMN O P QR </TD></TR>
  <TR>
    <TD>More test data</TD></TR>

</TABLE>

</BODY></HTML>
/***********/

This preserves the whitespace.  The only necessary stylesheet element is
white-space: pre.  I included the others so you can tell if anything is
working.

whitespace is valid in CSS1 only.  And the only browser I could make it work
in was Netscape 6.
