What you really want here is to align on the decimal point, but according to
http://xml.apache.org/fop/compliance.html#fo-property-text-align
text-align=<string> is not yet supported. The best workaround that I can
think of is to put your trailing ending parentheses into a separate table
cell, which is aligned /left/.
