1. In a TextDoc, press Ctrl-Enter to insert a Style Gadget (or use 
Gadgets.Insert TextStyle ~).
2. Clicking above the line at the left or right changes the text 
alignment: left, right or center.  Experiment with it.  Clicking in the 
middle of the line toggles page breaking (solid line).
3. Clicking MM-ML below the line sets tabs (which are only visible with 
left alignment).  MM moves a tab.  To delete it, move it away to the right.

Script works exactly the same, but use Script.NewStyle (in the title 
bar) to insert a style.
