How do I make a dotted line on a restaurant menu?

I'm trying to make a web page with a restaurant menu on it. Each line
on the menu is the name of a dish (left-justified) and that dish's
price (right-justified), with a dotted line between them. I'm doing
something similar to this menu:

http://cunardrestaurant.com/images/menu6.jpg

But three things make it difficult: (1) the names of the dishes are
all different lengths, (2) the prices can be different lengths, and
(3) some of the names of the dishes can be so long that they wrap onto
a second line. I want the dotted line to go from the end of the last
line in the dish's name to the beginning of the price, with no gaps.

How can I achieve this?

Thank you for the link! Actually, right after I posted my original
question, it finally occurred to me to add 'restaurant menu' to my
search for CSS (instead of just 'menu') and then I found that same
page. :) I appreciate the clue!

I have a restaurant menu to layout. http://www.tsmchughs.com/menus/ The format is item name, price, description, and possibly additional price info (e.g., soup and salad price). I'm trying to decide how best to use the space. I find that if I leave the width of the menu items to auto, the layout is too spread out. If I limit the width, then I have wasted space running along the page. I currently have the items in 2 columns, but...

I tried searching the newsgroups to see how do you draw a dotted line but I was unable to find an answer, drawing a straight line is very easy but not a dotted one. So the question is, how do I draw a dotted line? Thank you.

Hi I am looking to draw a dotted line between two controls at design time and render this at run time in a similar fashion. The most basic application of this would be a panel with two buttons on it. I would then draw a dotted line between the two. This line would then have to move when either of the two buttons move to update the connection between the two.
