How do I get these to line up?

I have a table of contents that looks like this

Preface
Introduction
Ric Charlesworth >> Hockey Coach
Wayne Bennett >> Rugby League Coach
Ron Barassi >> AFL Coach

I have lined them up by placing them in a table format and while they will stay perfect lined up at all size fonts on the Kindle it does mean the user has to click to get into the table before they can go down to get the link they want. What I'm really after is a way to line up the three columns at all size fonts without a Table that works on the Kindle. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

I'm not sure if this is what you're trying to accomplish, but you could try wrapping the text within <pre> and </pre> HTML tags, using spaces or tabs to line up the text. It would look something like this:

Code:
<pre>
Preface 
Introduction 
Ric Charlesworth	Hockey Coach
Wayne Bennett      	Rugby League Coach
Ron Barassi             AFL Coach
</pre>
This code will use Kindle's monospaced font, though.

Does Mobipocket support the "<pre>" tag?

As you're working with the Mobipocket Creator: it uses the <tt> tag to the same effect and to this tag the <pre> will be converted while building the mobi file.

Thanks dreamweaver for your help. I must admit I didn't think mobi supported the <pre> tag. Still if it does that certainly opens up possibilities. Does this only work with a monospaced font on the Kindle? Is there any way of getting to work with a normal font.

I know that KindleGen 1.0+ does support the <pre> tag. Unfortunately, I do not know of any way to get the spacing to work with regular fonts other than in a table, which doesn't work well on the Kindle.
