I've found the solution to this thing.
The problem lies in a new feature in SAS 8.2, that is that SAS will
use a 'TD' style class definition that will right-justify numeric data
As a result, if you use an existing stylesheet, a TD class must be
present, and it should also contain a 'text-align: right'. Otherwise
all numeric data will mess up. Typically the stylesheet should also
contain a Data class that will automatically be applied to character
