Theoretically this is the way to do it, yes, but it is not what i need.
I got some solutions that follow, and the best it seems to be the first:

1.
 <table border=1>
   <tr>
     <td> Something </td>
     <td> &#160; &#160; .... as you need.... </td>
     <td> Something </td>
   </tr>
 </table>

2.
 <table border=1>
   <tr>
     <td> Something </td>
     <td> &#32; &#32; &#32; &#32; &#32; &#32; &#32; &#32; &#32; </td>
     <td> Something </td>
   </tr>
 </table>

3.
 <table border=1>
   <tr>
     <td> Something </td>
     <td> <pre>           </pre> </td>
     <td> Something </td>
   </tr>
 </table>

4.
 <table border=1>
   <tr>
     <td> Something </td>
     <td colspan='a number'> </td>
     <td> Something </td>
   </tr>
 </table>

5.
 <table border=1>
   <tr>
     <td> Something </td>
     <td> <br> </td>
     <td> Something </td>
   </tr>
 </table>
</ol>

For each example you can see the layout.....
