Printing a field with tab stops

There are 2 things that go wrong when I print a field using:

   case "Page Setup..."
     answer printer
     break
   case "Print..."
     revShowPrintDialog false,true
     revPrintText (the htmlText of field "Directory")
     break

1. The tab stops are too short so the text almost always spills over.
2. No decorations, such as a grid, are printer.
3. Even though I say print page 1 to 1 it prints all of the pages.

How would I go about making printing work better?
