Hi Folks,
         I've found a bug in AbiCollab code to do with TAB's.

Basically libxml2 is converting tab's to spaces in this function.

szValue = (char *)xmlTextReaderGetAttribute(reader, (const xmlChar

This retrieve escapeXML'd text from the xmlparser. The text from the
originating abiword is created with this code:

    UT_UTF8String sText;
        sText = sText.escapeXML();

The escapeXML() method just converts <, >, ", and & and leaves TAB's

However upon being received the TAB's are converted to spaces via:
szValue = (char *)xmlTextReaderGetAttribute(reader, (const xmlChar

So what should we do to fix this?
