margins and left alignment

Hello,

In our monthly newsletter, we would like margins to be very wide, and within these margins, all text to align left. We found documentation in this forum about using html <table> to create margins, and it works somewhat, but padding of as much as 45px to the left and right margins only creates a slightly larger margin than 15px, this slightly larger margin being created by reducing the space between words. Also, though all text aligns left in the original html document, single short lines are centered in the phpList version of the document. Would you have a solution to these two issues? Our phpList version is 2.10.19.

See sample code below in which the first <table></table> looks okay except that the margin is too small, and the second <table></table> is centered instead of aligning to the left.

Thanks.
