    Is this in math mode or in text mode? Mar 23, 2011 at 22:26

There are many ways in which you can produce tabular material; the basic options are the tabbing environment, the tabular environment, and the arrray environment; depending in your intent, you can choose which one to use. Here's a little example:



X \=  a \= b \= c \\
 \> d \> e \> f

  X: & a & b & c \\
  & d & e & f

  X: & a & b & c \\
  & d & e & f


The above options are explained in any basic LaTeX manual.

    It should be noted that array and tabular are more or less the same (the use the same internal code), only that array defaults to math-mode and tabular to text mode. Mar 23, 2011 at 22:47
