The point is that your tab stops are at every 8th column even if some
other tab stops were used in your editor.

Unless you configured your terminal (emulator) with the same tab stops
as your editor.

Then, you'll need to configure your printer, browser and other visual
tools that have the every-8th-column-tab-stop default.
