I want to send a report with a column of dollars in the body of an email, not in an attachment. To make sure the dollars line up in any mail viewer, I think it needs to be a pdf. If the mail viewer uses variable width font, the column will not line up. I don't want to use an attachment because the email will already have one attachment for each line in the report (list of invoices). Any ideas?

Embedding a PDF is possible, but not what you want. If you can send your
message as HTML, you can use <pre> </pre> around the columnar data to have
it displayed in fixed width font. Using &nbsp; instead of spaces will also
help ensure your data is aligned how you intend. The rest of your message
can be displayed in whichever font your clients choose.
