Various browsers have trouble with the tab character
used in the TextFormattingRules. If you can't type a tab,
or, if you are fixing up a page written by someone who
didn't type tabs, then you should have us convert
spans of spaces to tabs for you. You request
space to tab conversion with the checkbox that appears
near the bottom of EditText pages. It looks
something like this...
[ ] I can't type tabs. Please ConvertSpacesToTabs for me when I save.
A span of spaces must be at least three spaces long to be recognized
as a tab. Use multiples of eight spaces to make multiple tabs.
Each span of eight spaces will convert to one tab. If the
last span comes up a little short, that's ok, as long as
there are at least three spaces in the last (only) span.
Check your work. This sort of heuristic can lead to
See TipForTypingTab for help with getting tabs into text when your browser is fighting you.
[Maintenance note: This page is seen when the user clicks on the "ConvertSpacesToTabs" link on any edit screen. It describes what happens when you ask the system to do this, why you would want it to, and ways to avoid the spaces-instead-of-tabs problem.]
