      My apologies for what may be a stupid question, but is there any way to tab in RH?

      For example, in Word, if I want to do something like this:

      New Install: 400MB

      I simply tab after "Install" to get the desired amount of space between it and "400MB". So far, I have found no way of tabbing in RH, and instead I have to use the space bar.

      The main problem using a space bar is getting things to line up if you are doing something like the above over multiple lines.

      Does RH simply not allow tabbing, or am I being totally blind here?

      Edit: BTW, I am using RH7 and working with HTML / .chm files if that matters.

          Hi there Tech Writer KC

          Welcome to the 21st century and the brave new world of electronically delivered output!

          The thing is, in HTML, there is no such critter as a tab stop. If alignment is important, you either use spaces or possibly insert things into a table and arrange the columns and rows as you like.

          Cheers... Rick

            nope - no tabs in HTML, so no tabs in RH HTML.
            Use tables as a way to line up data cleanly.
