PS: "I was also under the impression that the tab character (control
i) would simply create a wider gap between words and that the return
character would create a whole line of white space."
PT: "Neither of those two is correct. In normal TeX source, a tab
character and an end-of-line character are treated in exactly the
same way as a space,..."
PS: "Do tabs and end of line chars appear as a space? I'm not sure
if I follow. What is the visual effect of an end of line character
(in Windows ctrl-j ctrl-m)? I thought it pushed the text up by one
line and positioned the cursor at the start of the new line."
