It's as if the spacing between elements is increasing upon export. In other
words, visually, things may line up, but when the report is exported to
e-mail, perhaps 10 spaces is used instead of 6 - or something similar. The
thing that really gets me is how the words "New Charges" were taken from the
beginning of the line and shifted to the end of the same line, overlapping
the last character of that line (the 't' in 'Amount').

Go figure.
