Formatting text to look like a table

I have tried many times to create something that looks like a short table on pprune. Everythng looks good when editing but after "POST" is pressed and the item actually gets posted all consecutive spaces disappear. Tabs do not seem to be allowed. I have tried repeatedly to get round this. using ^t for tab, copying and pasting tabs from other software (say MS Word), [CNRTL]9, [ALT] and NumPad 9. I have tried every imaginable way of getting a tab into a pprune post. Nothing works.

I now just post an image such as

I paste something that looks EXACTLY like above from notepad and I get this, which is completely useless.

CalAlt gs Track
0ft 17kts 34deg
48 56
155 53
2,275 146 58
2,225 132 55
2,200 76 81

Is there a solution other than posting images which is inconvenient and prevents the table from being cut/pasted/edited by others?

At this time, our editor does not support tables.
