the HTML engine doesn't care about column width. To obtain well formated
text tables, you must play with the 'format_name', 'format' and 'format_total'
fields of each 'column' block. The syntax is the same a perl printf.
The max width is set to 79 chars. There's a space between each column.

section innd_control {
        title   "Control commands to INND:";
        data    "%innd_control";
        column {
                name          "Command";
                format        "%-71.71s";
                value         "$key";
                format_total  "TOTAL: %-64.64s";
                total         "$num";
        column {
                name          "Number";
                format_name   "%7s";
                value         "$innd_control{$key}";
                format        "%7d";
                total         "total(%innd_control)";

header: format_name || format       71+1+7=79
common line : format                71+1+7=79
footer: format_total || format      length('TOTAL: ')+64+1+7=79
