Tika itself doesn't generate tab characters, it generates xhtml table
elements. It's the text content handler that does tabs
In general though, Tika will generate the text that is present.
If you're trying to generate a CSV or similar, and want full control over
what shows up, missing cells etc, then I'd suggest you look at using
Apache POI directly.
