@Trim Function In R5 Converts Horizontal Tab Characters [@Char(9)] Into Spaces [@Char(32)]


The @Trim() function in Notes R5 converts Horizontal Tab characters [@Char(9)]
into spaces [@Char(32)]

Steps to Reproduce Problem:
1. Create a Form with a Computed or Computed for Display field on it; call it
2. Create a second field of the same field type on the same form; call it
3. Enter the following Value formulas:
FIELD1: "A" + @Char(9) + "B"

4. Save and close the form.
5. Create a document using that form. Note that the Horizontal Tab from FIELD1
is converted into a Space in FIELD2.

The behavior of @Trim() in R5 is inconsistent with earlier versions of Notes,
namely Notes R4. This new behavior is undocumented.
