Okay i wrote a small program that allows users to creat book listings
featuring copyright date author and title. Now when i display the book
listings i get this.

Book:  testover6  	Author:  ???  	Copyright: 2003
Book:  testu6  	Author:  ???  	Copyright: 2003

Okay now after the book title their is supposed to a tab the coding goes
like this.

for x in title_author.keys():
        print "Book: ",x," \tAuthor: ",title_author[x],"
\tCopyright:",title_copyright[x]

it seems that whenever i go over six characters it adds another tab. Is
there a preset field limit to six bytes. What is happening? Thanx in
advance.


         When you see the net take the shot
         When you miss your shot shoot again
           When you make your shot you win!

                   Just remember
               Offense sells tickets
           But defense wins championships!
