The tabstops are a cumulative number representing the pixels from the
left of the field for each stop. If you set them to "120,125" the
first column will be 120 pixels wide and all other columns will be 5
pixels wide.

I recommend Frederic Rinaldi's revTabRuler plugin which now comes as
one the the standard plugins in your Rev installation. It allows you
to set tabStops graphically by dragging  them along in his palette. I
wrote an article about it some time ago for revJournal
<http://www.revjournal.com/features/tabruler.html>. Just ignore the
installation instructions as it should already be in the plugins menu.

Cheers,
Sarah
