Either it is converted into a length, and inherited as the computed 
value, in which case it is really a length, or it is a pure number of 
some sort of character, in which case, when inherited, it will reflect 
the size of that sort of character in the new font size.

Normally, when people use tabs, they expect them to line up even when 
the font size changes.
