Text formatting question

So I have this situation… I have a large amount of html text in a text box, and I need to split it into 4 columns within the text box. At the moment, I am going into the XML file (the source of the text) and adding and subtracting tabs. This works ok, but is a massive waste of time.

Is there a better way of doing this?

Also, is there any way of setting up where i want the tabs to go? Like, first tab at 50px, second one at 120px?

Any advice welcome :slight_smile:
