Inputting TAB characters into web page edit boxes


J

With any kind of web browsers, how to input TAB characters into any web page
edit boxes without using clipboard nor additional program?

Simply pressing the TAB key will move the input focus instead of inserting
the TAB character.

With native Windows program edit boxes, I could press CTRL-I to insert a TAB
character, but it doesn't work when under a web browser.

Also same for ALT with the numpad "9" key (the TAB ASCII code). Works with
native Windows program edit boxes, but under a web browser, it create a
small-circle character instead (Unicode 0x25CB).

Only works in Chrome. :(
OK, sorry. I wasn't careful in my reading, partly because I basically
agree with Mike Barnes's question :)

I *think* I know, or can find out, how to put tabs into HTML, but to
tell the truth, I haven't ever tried to use tabs when coding HTML.
