Formatted output in KSH

Hi,

Is there some way to get formatted output in ksh? Something like a properly alligned tabular format. I tried adding '\t' to echo statements, but it doesn't come properly alligned

Code:
'hello'         A simple Hello
'helloworld'        A helloworld statement

I need the second coloumn to be displayed left aligned.
Links to some tutorials will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

printf "%-20s%-20s\n" "Hello" "Next test"

man printf
