FO 1.0 has character alignment--see the "<string>" value of the
text-align property:


     Specifies a string on which content of cells in a table column will
align (see the section, in the CSS2 Recommendation, on horizontal
alignment in a column for details and an example). This value applies
only if the formatting object is a descendant of a table cell. If set on
other formatting objects, it will be treated as "start".

However, few, if any, current FO implementations have implemented it.
