Ah, yes, nice: tabs like a recipe book or a library card-index, rather 
than in the typewriter sense of pre-set columns.

Aesthetically and logically, I wish that tabbed dialogues like this 
were standard in RiscOS.  Our more common design (mis)uses radio 
buttons in a strange unintuitive way to mean tabs.  The only other 
apps I can think of that use proper tabs are those by Paul Reuvers, 
such as !Confix.  (He too is Dutch!)  Should be in the style guide.
