Does some FF3.1 dev version actually work roughly how we want with a
text-align:right?  When I try it in FF3.0.5 I get the issue that
Giovanni was originally alluding to, where the "$" just sits next to
the text of each cell, and is *not* aligned with the others.  (Which
is, honestly, a little weird, since the cells *are* all of uniform
width, so one would naively expect the "$" to float all the way to the
left of the cell, but they don't.)
