How can I determine if a TAB character exists in the text string?

Solution

The little dots shown indicated a spaces and the arrow character is indicated a TAB character. In NOTEPAD++, PsPad, and other text editors all showing special characters this way.

Show White Space and TAB view option in Notepad++ displays yellow dots for White Spaces and yellow arrows for TAB indents in the script. This function can save precious time locating places where the indentation is wrong.
