Given this table:
\starttabulate[|l|l]
\NC 8:00\emdash noon \NC Ordering/opening/training\NR 
\NC \NC Food~preparation\NC\NR 
\NC Noon\emdash 2:00 PM \NC Luncheon~sales\NR
\NC 2:00 PM\emdash 7:00 PM \NC General administration/baking \NR
\NC \NC Supplier meeting (this is you) \NC\NR 
\stoptabulate
----------------------------
the Word "Food" is left justified in the
column (good) and the word "preparation"
is right justified (bad). The same problem occurs
in the string "Luncheon sales." The glyph "~"
doesn't help.

I also tried the table variation in chapter
twenty-two of  "The TeXbook". That doesn't work
in MKIV. 

My last resort is to introduce a one page pdf from
the InDesign-created pdf. But the must be a
Context solution.
