I have a table of integers; a handful of them have an extra superscript marks to distinguish various characteristics.

I think the table looks nice, but the superscript marks throw off the alignment. Can someone suggest how I can have the table elements right aligned and have the marks extend into the whitespace between the table columns?

An example of my table is given here

enter image description here

\begin{table}[p] \centering
    \caption{List of \SZA s for the \NDI\ data tables released with \MENDFx. The separations are merely for convenience and show the light ($Z < 25$), mid-weight ($25\leq Z < 89$) and the actinides. The \SZA s with an asterisk (*) indicate isotopes new to \ndf[1] and \SZA s new in the \MENDFx\ library.}

    use \rlap{$^*$} – David Carlisle Aug 21 '13 at 13:47
  • @DavidCarlisle that's exactly what I needed. What exactly does \rlap do? – jlconlin Aug 21 '13 at 13:59
  • @Jeremy: \rlap sets a right over-lap or a box of width 0pt that is left-aligned (causing the overlap to the right). – Werner Aug 21 '13 at 14:22

    @DavidCarlisle -- make that an answer (unless this question is a duplicate). – barbara beeton Aug 21 '13 at 14:36

Doing what barbara says:

use

\rlap{$^*$} 

(Note this hides the width of the marker so relies on inter-column space being large enough to avoid over-printing the next column)
