Allow adjustment of column width individually

Need the ability to change the width of individual columns, or at least turn on/off word wrapping for individual columns. This needs to translate to HTML, Excel, PDF, etc.

Use Case:

The only adjustment available is Autofit, which simply turns off/on word wrap for all columns. A 'A1024V' text column wraps, but still takes up so much room that 'A20' columns also wrap, causing line bunching where not necessary. This makes lines with very short 'A1024V' fields wrap every column unnecessarily.
