Given this table:
\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 
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.
