Text Alignment In Forum Posts

Post by TJDoc85 on July 21st 2010, 7:11 pm

Hey Guys i hope you can help...

Im trying to post a league table which is in courier new font (for alignment of columns purposes) from a text file. However when its posted onto the forum all the spacing in between is removed so that nothing lines up and becomes a nightmare to read.

Is there anyway to paste something in simple text format, like notepad?

So it should look like the image below;


But instead looks like this;

League Table

Goals Goals
Obs Player Played Won Drawn Lost For Against +/- Points

1 Paul 10 6 2 2 29 14 15 20
2 Adam 10 6 0 4 24 28 -4 18
3 Tom 10 5 1 4 35 18 17 16
4 Tom B 10 5 1 4 23 19 4 16
5 Gareth 10 5 1 4 25 28 -3 16
6 Paul B 10 0 1 9 5 34 -29 1


Any ideas?

Cheers in advance.
Tom

Making a table requires inputting every single cell, i need to be able to copy this straight from the text file to the forum, if its possible.

Currently its all calculated using a program which outputs a text file, which is then sent to all participants by email. The idea of the forum is i can just paste it in there and let people view at their own leisure without the hassle of clogging up inbox's.
