I take it your have tried:

put the rtfText of field "X" into URL 
("file:"&specialFolderPath("desktop")&slash&"savedfield.rtf")

And then reading it back to a new field with:

set the rtfText of field "Y" to URL 
("file:"&specialFolderPath("desktop")&slash&"savedfield.rtf")

and the tab spacing is not preserved?
