Nope: tables are a hack to do in HTML what HTML can't do very well any other way.

XSL-FO has full support for right justification. (Try to format even plain generic Hebrew or Arabic without being able to flush right. HTML wasn't designed with the requirements of non-Western languages in mind; XSL was. :-)

You'll learn all about it in Ken's book, which you'll find at

or in any of several other decent FO books.
