When Mozilla prints HTML pages, the output includes 'tabs' as 4 (?) spaces - the exact number is tough to tell on a sheet of paper. I expected Mozilla to print the HTML exactly like Gecko renders it - with tabs as a single space, according to the rest of the HTML formatting rules. The URL above is just an example of this effect - if you look at the source HTML, you'll see after some of the variables (e.g. '$close_msg', '$log_path'), there's a tab in the source. This tab shows up in the printed version. I'm runing the May 21 daily build on Debian GNU/Linux. Feel free to contact me if you need more info.
(Better title) - can someone confirm this?

The example URL isn't valid anymore. Does anyone has another testcase for this ?
The testcase is no longer accessible, as noted in the previous comment. I tried to construct a testcase from scratch, but mozilla formatted text the same whether I used tabs or spaces. Resolving invalid because no valid test case is available.
