Here's a post I found that explains how to do it. Basically you copy and paste your spreadsheet into a text file and then put a "< pre >" at the beginning and a "< /pre >" (both without spaces) at the end, which should keep your spacing.

I am trying to include tables for income statements, cash flow and balance statements in a post. No matter how nicely it is alligned when I paste it from Appleworks, when it ends up on TMF it is gibberish. Any way to cut and paste or do I go through the agony of typing it in?

Cut and paste of tables into HTML is usually not transparent. For the case of TMF, you should enclose the text with the lines "< pre >" and "< /pre >" (both without any spaces) to preserve fixed-width spacing. For example:

< pre >15268 2924 328 123 21839 1291 2391 22 11< /pre >
looks like:

15268 2924 328 123 21839 1291 2391 22 11
