New CTAN package: tabfigures
The tabfigures package is a collection of patches for using tabular figures in some LaTeX environments where numbers should line up vertically such as the table of contents and enumerations. An older version is bundled with the MinionPro package.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/tabfigures . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/tabfigures (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
tabfigures – Maintain vertical alignment of figures
Knuth designed his original fonts with tabular figures (figures whose width is uniform); this makes some layout problems rather simple. In more recent times, fonts (such as Minion Pro), which offer proportionally spaced figures, are increasingly being used.
The package provides mechanisms whereby such proportional figures may still be aligned in tabular style (for example, in the table of contents).
