On Mon, 2 Aug 2004 Scott Pakin submitted an update to his eqparbox 

 > Name of contribution: eqparbox
 > Suggested location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/eqparbox/
 > Summary description: Create equal-widthed parboxes
 > License type: lppl
 > Announcement text:
 > ----------------------------------------------------------------------
 > LaTeX users sometimes need to ensure that two or more
 > blocks of text occupy the same amount of horizontal
 > space on the page.  To that end, the eqparbox package
 > defines a new command, \eqparbox, which works just like

 > of alignment purposes, as is evidenced by the examples
 > in eqparbox's documentation.
 > Version 2.0 makes better use of TeX's memory, allows
 > numbers and symbols to appear in tags, preserves fonts
 > across \\ boundaries, and eliminates some incorrect
 > \global prefixes.
