Table alignment

I have a triangular-shaped table (i.e. 1.234 2.567 3.146 2.43 3.489 1.585 ) that I want to have printed in this fashion, with everything neatly aligned. TableForm and MatrixForm both print out the table, in a triangular shape, but for some reason the columns further to the right (there are 20 columns in the longest row) do not line up correctly, but snake. I think this is due to some of the numbers in one row being of different lengths (like the 2.43 above) but I thought TableForm would take that into account. Is there a way I can fix TableForm so it won't fudge on me, or, alternatively, is there a way to make Mathematica print out the extra 0's at the end of real numbers so I can fill out the table myself? Thanks. / :@-) Scott \
