Default Lining up opening letters.

I had to type a list today in Illustrator CS2 (Mac). Problem was that a couple of the lines started with a capital T, and the shape of the letter made the line appear to shift to the right (font was TNR 12pt). I'll try to show you what happened here, but it might not come out...

Opening the Cage
The Day of Reckoning
All Together Now
These Aren't Real Titles!

Actually, the forum software here lines up the initial letters much better! But if you type them in Frustrator, you'll see what I mean. Any recommendations on how to line 'em up better?
