To change the default tab stops used by Viewer or Windows Help, the new tab stop positions must be explicitly set in Word for Windows. Word's default tab stops are not supported by Viewer.

Word for Windows uses the RTF token \deftabN to save its default tab stops, where N is the size of the default tabs. Viewer doesn't support this RTF token, and when it sees tabs within the RTF file, Viewer it uses its own default tab stops, which are at .5 inches.

If tab stop positions are explicitly set in Word, Word will write \txN tokens to the RTF file, where N is the position of the tab stop. Viewer does support the \tx token, and therefore the tabs will show up correctly in the Viewer title.
