The tab is an artefact of the typewriter. It existed to allow typists to make several spaces fast. Unfortunately, the original computer alphabet was a slavish copy of the typewriter keyboard. The existence of the tab character and the conflict it engenders should be an object lesson in why slavish copying from a prior model is a bad idea.
