Good solution.
The only catch I can think of, Mark, is if tabs are used in an empty line of
a table, or (in a weird case) some other char is used as a default column

This would happen in the case of a list generator that does
put val1 &tab& val2 &tab& val3 & cr after newList
--and all the vals are emtpy.
