Use the align tag for questions about aligning text vertically. For example, formatting tables so the columns in a row line up under the columns in the previous row; or having consecutive rows of text arranged to keep a symbol/separator in the same column, such as the equal sign in equations, or a series of variable assignments.

The Emacs functions align, align-current, align-entire and align-regexp support different ways of achieving text alignment.
