Correct -- this is the same as in *any* wysiwig editor, because tab  
is an actual text character that resides in the body of text, rather  
than a meta-directive to an editor.

However, hitting alt-shift-R indents all selected lines, i.e. shifts  
them right by one tab-stop, which I think is what you are looking for.

Similarly, alt-shift-L will shift all selected lines one tab-stop to  
the *left*.
