Ojan points out there's a need for a "tab" command, since "indent" doesn't
match the behavior of tabbing:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2012JanMar/0090.html

This needs to behave like indent for lists, but in regular text probably needs
to insert something like <span style="white-space:pre-wrap">&#9;</span>, and in
tables should tab between cells.

Do we also want an "untab" command that behaves like Shift-Tab?  Presumably
yes, for table cells at least.  How should it behave in regular text?  Or
lists?  LibreOffice Writer behaves oddly.
