The suggestion I made two years ago in
http://forums.wolfram.com/mathgroup/archive/2005/Oct/msg00548.html
seems to work just fine with Times changed to Arial:
myForm[x_Integer,{n_,f_}] := ToString@PaddedForm[x, n-f ];
myForm[x_, {n_,f_}] := ToString@PaddedForm[x,{n,f}];
StyleForm[TableForm[Transpose[{statNames, StringReplace[
myForm[#,{4,1}]," "->" "]&/@statNumbers}]],
FontFamily->"Arial"]
