Goal

Is it possible to delimit two consecutive tabs? How to do it ?

When defining a tab delimited UEL template the following problem is encountered.
When there are two consecutive tab delimiters, the second tab is not treated as a seperate field.

Meaning:
tab-tab-value is treated as one field instead of two.
tab-space-tab-value is treated as two fields correctly.
