[thelist] aligning text within inline elements

As we've seen on some recent emails, text-align works well for
aligning text in block level elements. My problem is this: I have
this type of thing happening --

..wrapper tables and stuff

<span>A Title Word</span> <span>Links</span>


I need to get my Title word aligned LEFT, and my Links aligned RIGHT.
I cannot use another TD cell to do this, because the way the tables
around it are layed out, you get a 'border' showing for the
cellspacing which I cannot have (its a nested table with a grey
background essentially).

Ideas on how to do this?

I'd rather not put yet another table inside that cell merely to
accomplish this, but I will if I have to.

(FYI, Full blown CSS isn't remotely an option here, this is a hugely
frames and table heavy application...ugh.)
