  icomment: There is no particular definition of what happens when -tabs is
            combined  with -justify right.

            I think the implementation as is is correct as that should be what a
            right-to-left language would expect.

            There will be people that expect -tabs and -justify right to act like:
            -tabs [list 4 right 8 right 12 right] -justify left  but that is

            I have the rewritten test 2.26 working on Linux and Mac OS X.

            For 24.24:  I have no idea how the combination of -tabs and -justify

            is a first tab in this case?),  so all I can do is match the

            In general, for left-to-right languages, these combinations are not
            that useful. It is more important to make sure that the:  -justify
            left -tabs [4 center 8 numeric 12 left 16 left 20 right]   style works

            A right-to-left language should be able to use -justify right and tabs
            should work exactly backwards.
