That works -- to some extent. But, that means that the formatting of the table is completely dependent on the number of spaces between the elements. It is essentially the same kind of formatting of tables I did on my first typewriter about 40 years ago. Any nontrivial change is troublesome, and you have to stick to fixed size fonts like Courier. Modern editors have moved far beyond that point.

This is about generating a table in a text document from R type output. This type of table increases flexibility in respect to formatting.
