tabular figures

Indices : Terminology : Tabular Figures

A style of numbers that are all designed on a common width so as to line up in documents that compare numerical data in columns. One drawback of this scheme of common widths is that some numbers appear to have too much space, the number one in particular.
See Proportional Figures. Sometimes indicated in a font's name as TF.
