here is a small demo where tab chars are inside a pre element.
They should act like tabs and not like a series of space chars
but Amaya is doing the latter.......

<h1>Tabs in Pre:VE3LL@RAC.CA</h1>
<p>The following code illustrates how Amaya 8.53 mishandles tabs within
the PRE element. Tabs are treated as a fixed length rather than moving
to the next zone (your call as to width of zones (many default to eight
character). Check the look against any mainstream browser</p><pre>
