Assuming that the output device uses it as a tab then at least 1 and up to the 'tab size' setting for the device. Typically this is between 1 and 8 but for most output devices that accept tabs it can be configured. The 'tab' adds spaces to take the output to the next tab boundary (multiple of the tab size).
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
