How to use tabular figures

Hi all,

I feel really stupid asking this but… how do you use tabular figures in InDesign and Illustrator for example. I need to do a few tables and the "Tabular linings" options in InDesign and Illustrator does nothing. The numbers still aren't lined up properly. The font I'm using is Gotham (Thin, Book, Medium and Bold). The HF&J site said that those weight supports tabular figures. I've installed the OpenType version.

Thanks in advance!

I'm researching about Seravek type family. I woud like to read some reviews. Do you know an avaiable review to this type family?

I'm typesetting a schedule of events for a client.

The schedule table is made up of three columns of information: the time range, the event name, and the location. My question is about how best to set the ranges of time in the first column.

Should the numerals in the ranges of time align vertically? Or is vertical alignment not a desirable goal because the information isn't meant to be compared or contrasted?
