tabs in String in dlg box

I have a string defined like so
String myString = "\t\thello\nsomething else";

When displayed as the text in a dlg box (specifically, JOptionPane.showOptionDialog()), the \n shows up but the tabs are ignored.

What gives?

If you want to create columns in a text on a dialog,
do so using HTML and a table:

<HTML><CENTER><TABLE><TR><TD WIDTH=400>a text</TD>.....................

and so on.
Of course you decide about constants or %% to set the tabbing.

;JOOP!
