More precisely, the spec is clear but probably not very useful.

Specifically, if you have preformatted text in a block with 
letter-spacing, the spacing of tab stops is not affected by the 
letter-spacing per spec.  Maybe it should be, because otherwise 
preformatted text with tabs in it ends up laying our all wrong.
