Theoretically, yes. There are two attributes (char, charoff) that
you can use with TD and TR to specify a character that the text will be
aligned on, e.g., a period, and to specify an offset to the character.
However, these attributes are new in HTML 4 and I don't know if any of the
browsers support them yet.
