whatever editor I use .. I have not found a way to see the unprintable
characters (Tab).

hmm, that's pretty easy... Just use "vim" and type :set list<CR>; now
every Tab character will be shown as ^I ;-)

I don't actually like that editing mode, though; if you, however, insist
on changing the leading 8 blanks in a line into a tab, you can run
"unexpand" on any text file to do exactly that ...
