Continuing the discussion from Rounding errors in carb counting caused by stupid nutrition labels:
I tried to see what had already been said about this. The quote below is from a meta.discourse.org post by Jeff Atwood. Jeff is a Discourse co-founder & designer & developer.
The only alternative I can think of is not a very helpful one. It is to block quote the items. This forces a monospaced font to be used so that you can, with more than a bit of twiddling, get the “columns” to line up. For example …
Item | Servs per | Size =carb | Net weight(Total) soup | about 2. | 240g = 10c | 524g or 2.18 servings peas | about 3½ | 130g = 20c | 425g or 3.26 beans | about 3½ | 130g = 21c | 425g or 3.26
It’s a tedious and thankless process and I don’t recommend it. I’m sorry I don’t have a better suggestion. If I ever think of a better approach I’ll try to remember to update this post.
