This strange thing about this text alignment problem is
that even on the other computers where the problem
manifests itself, it doesn't do it consistently. Reports
for some accounts will be perfectly aligned while others
will not be. And it seems to be consistent on all of the
other computers (there are only three of them). So I am
at a loss as to what to do. The only difference that I
can see is that I have multiple versions and they do not.
