I'm following Kevin's book on mySQL & PHP programming, and have run into a problem. With another book I've read, using the \n & \t would render a new-line & a tab, respectively.

I thought using a \t would cause a tab to appear... I'm trying it like so:

echo("<li>$name \t" .
"[<a href='editauthor.php?id=$id'>Edit</a> | " .
"<a href='deleteauthor.php?id=$id'>Delete</a>]" .

Is there any reason why it wouldn't appear 1-tab away? Any clarification would be much appreciated.
