Thanks Sarah great tip! It works great for development, which I  
needed presently. I will in the future be making a card which will  
act as a table listing function for various tables and their  
respective data sets, and so I will need to change them on the fly,  
by passing the tab stops along with the table and fields I want to  
display. To that end I wrote a simple function which converts column  
widths eg. 1,2,3,4 into tab stops eg 1,3,6,10. I will post it as soon  
as I am sure I have the bugs worked out.
