Setting TE Insertion point? - Mac Programming

Hi, How do I set the TE insertion point to a specific horizontal pixel location? What I want to do is line words up to specific column placings within a *single* view. The placement only seems possible with characters/bytes which, depending on the font, means lining them up pixel-perfect isn't possible. Thanks Laura BTW, Why do most TextEdit functions carry a 'Not recommended' warning in Developer Help?...

    Default Setting TE Insertion point?

    Hi,
