Hi,
 
I am trying to output the contents of a memo field (which was populated with the contents of a text file) to a web page.  I create the text by using ? commands, and make it columnar by using ? spac() commands on each line.  This prints to a printer just fine.  I also make sure I'm using a non-proportional font like Courier New.
 
The problem is that the spaces are not translating correctly on the web page, leaving the columnar data to wander all over the place.  Example output:
 
ADMINISTRATIVE MANAG 0.00 1.50 172.74 0.00 0 0.00 0
WORD PROCESSING 0.00 44.00 1794.52 0.00 0 2000.00 90
PRINT ROOM 0.00 7.75 261.98 0.00 0 1000.00 26
ADMINISTRATIVE ASSIS 0.00 128.25 4703.84 0.00 0 50000.00 9
----- ----- ------- ----- --- -------- ---
SUBTOTAL: 0.00 181.50 6933.08 0.00 0 53000.00 13

These should be in columnar format.  If I examine both the source text file and the actual memo field, they are lined up perfectly.
 
Here's the short code I used to output it:
 
    x=memlines(budtext)
    for i=1 to x
        Response.Write(mline(budtext,i)+"<br>")       
    endfor
 
Any thoughts on what might be causing this problem?
 
Thanks very much,
