We found the need to introduce a CSS property that allows controlling the  
size of a tab. This feature will be in some future version of Opera  
(likely after the next version) but I thought it would be good to share  
what we have with the CSS WG and CSS community to see if it's worth  
standardizing. The property is really simple:


   Value: <integer> | inherit
   Initial: 8
   Applies to: all elements
   Inherited: yes
   Percentages: N/A
   Media: visual
   Computed value: as specified

Only positive integer values are allowed. The initial value of 8 is taken  
 from section 16.6.1 "The 'white-space' processing model" of the CSS 2.1  

Kind regards,

Anne van Kesteren
