Two years ago in [mg51433] I posed this problem of formatting a table
column having a mixture of integers and approximate numbers in such a
way that the decimal point on the floats would be vertically aligned
with the implied decimal on the integers.
For example, here's the data for the table:
statNames = {"N", "Max", "Min", "Mean", "Std.dev.", "Median"};
statNumbers = {40, 103, 2, 56.8, 22.5, 59};
The object was to combine these into a properly formatted table starting
from:
(* original table *)
TableForm[Transpose[{statNames,statNumbers}]]
A good solution was proposed by Valeri Astanoff (sorry, I don't have the
message reference number):
pad[x_Integer]:=PaddedForm[x,3];
pad[x_Real]:=PaddedForm[x,4];
(* aligned table *)
TableForm[Transpose[{statNames, pad /@ statNumbers}]]
Now I need to complicate the problem by putting everything in a
non-default font, by using, e.g.,
fmtTxt[txt_]:=Style[txt, FontFamily -> "Arial",FontSize->12]
so that the TableForm expression is changed to:
(* formatted table *)
TableForm[Transpose[{fmtTxt/@statNames, fmtTxt/@ pad /@ statNumbers}]]
Unfortunately, this now breaks the nice vertical alignment. How can the
alignment of "aligned table" be restored but still use such text formatting?
