I imported my notes from my Palm Centro into Note Everything and the tab characters in my existing notes show up correctly.

But how do I type a tab character on my Xperia X10?

I changed the title, because it seems Android devices differ a bit more than I feared. –  Roger Wernersson Apr 18 '11 at 5:42

If you use the Swype keyboard, holding the space key gives you a tab. Smart Keyboard Pro also has tab, press ?123 twice for it.

Didn't know that about the Swype keyboard (not that I use tab often). –  Bryan Denny Apr 13 '11 at 13:49
    
I installed Smart Keyboard but didn't find any key for tabulation. Is it only available in the Pro version? –  Roger Wernersson Apr 18 '11 at 5:38
    
Smart Keyboard Pro is the right answer. It also has arrow keys, so now I don't need to post a second question about that. :-) –  Roger Wernersson Apr 18 '11 at 12:33

On the stock keyboard on my Droid (the soft keyboard, not the slide-out) I see the tab character on the alt-symbol keyboard.

Hit ?123 key, then Alt. The tab key looks like an arrow pointing right to a line.

Unfortunately it isn't present on X10. :-/ –  Roger Wernersson Apr 18 '11 at 5:39
