[Seaside] labelling radio buttons in a table

I'm making a table successfully from my potential multiple choice 
answers -looks pretty good so far.  However, I'd really like to find a 
nice way to stick A -B-C etc next to the button, just like I do for the 
non-table questions.

I haven't been able to find any hint of a way to do this from the W3C 
website. I have some vague ideas about other approaches but they all 
seem pretty likely to be ugly.

My current html method looks like this:-

	^'[questionID]. [description]
		<if sea:id="needsTable=true">
			<form sea:id="chooseAnswer" >
				<table border=1>
						<th>&nbsp;</th><th sea:id="hdr/tableHeaders">[hdr]</th>
					<tr sea:id="row/answerList">
					<td><input type="radio" 
sea:id="tableAnswersGroup"></td><td sea:id="col/row"> [col] </td>
				<input type="submit" value="Answer">
		<if sea:id="needsTable=false">
			<form sea:id="chooseAnswer" >
	<ol type="A" >
					<li sea:id="each/answerList"><input type="radio" 
sea:id="answersGroup"> [each]
				<input type="submit" value="Answer">
	Choose the answer you think is correct and then press the 
<b>Answer</b> button '
The least ugly thing I can come up right now is to make the #answerList 
method add the $A(etc) to the beginning of each element and then use 
COLSPAN=2 in the table defn to sort of fudge the letter onto the button. 
Yucky. Can anyone thing of a better trick?
