tab character
Last modified: Friday, January 17, 2003 

A special character that can be inserted into a text document.

Different programs react to tab characters in different ways. Most word processors, for example, move the cursor or insertion point to the next tab stop, and most printers move the print head to the next tab stop as well. Some programs, however, simply ignore tabs.
