How should I format a table inside of a forum post?

Hey all, sorry if this is a stupid question and/or in the wrong place, but how are we supposed to format tables inside of a forum post so that its readable by the forum members? I use the code tags to format the SQL itself but I can't get the output to format in a readable table. If I use the code tags around the data itself all of the column data is aligned is a seemingly random way. I've seen really nicely formatted output on this forum so I'm obviously missing something and I am hoping I don't need to manually insert spaces everywhere and keep checking the Preview tab to make sure it looks proper. I just want my posts to be readable and not confusing. I've searched the FAQ and other forums and can't find anything that helps me....

Thanks in advance,
