That would be awesome, IMHO! I don't know of a simple way to put a 
table inside some text now, except by putting a table inside a table 
and defining three columns. In that case, however, you don't get text 
flow from one side to the other as the entire field (or font) is 
resized; David's reaction to Eric's idea would solve this neatly.
