You might be able to simulate it with CSS. Define classes like t1, t2, etc.,
give them positions in ems, and do something like

 Description
   <SPAN CLASS=t1>Price</SPAN>
   <SPAN CLASS=t2>Qty</SPAN>
   <SPAN CLASS=t3>Total</SPAN><BR>
...

(although that particular example would be better as a table)
