tab tag

The tab tag is used to define a tab used within a (document) window.

Note: this file format is not formally published and the tag attributes are subject to ongoing change. The code sample is taken from an actual tab's data but the order of the attributes cannot be assumed to be constant. As such this does not constitute an official specification of the tag.
