play script layout

Consider a section of text laid out like a play script - essentially two columns, the first containing a person's name, top-aligned, the second containing a block of text.

Any better idea than using HTML tables? It works, but it's very laborious. Slightly helped by dropping into a web editor program where I can construct the tables visually, then pasting code back into Sigil. But still laborious.

Unfortunately the Word doc original is laid out messily and inconsistently, so auto-conversion is doomed.

Can it be that easy? :-) I'll try when I get home. Does it cope well when the text runs to more than one line and, of course, the indent needs to be maintained?
