[OS X TeX] "lining" figures/numbers, old-style figures, and tables

	Hi all,

	I'm typesetting/writing an article that is primarily text, but also contains statistical tables and such. I prefer to use Palatino (mathpazo package, to be specific).

	Some fonts, as many of you know, contain both "uppercase" (so-called "lining") figures/numbers and "lowercase" ("old-style") figures. I usually invoke the old-style option, as it makes numbers set in the body text look more appropriate. But in tables of regression results, I'd prefer to have the uppercase/lining numbers, as these have a more consistent look for reading in tables. But I can't figure out how to get the table/tabular environment to default to lining figures. Does anyone have any idea how to do such?
