Description defines the location of tab stops.

Tab stops must be greater than zero and in increasing order.

The position, "tabstop", is relative to the left margin, which includes any indent margin (".im") settings.

A tab must be less than the current line length.

There may be a maximum of 20 tab stops per command.

A tab position may contain up to two decimal places. This is useful when using proportional pitch fonts and printers with horizontal movement capabilities.

To move the text to these tabs, use the ".tl" and the ".tr" commands. (Do not use the <tab> keys.)
