Formatting issue using a TextArea gwt 1.6

We are using a text area to type a letter which is later saved in
The contents saved in database are later populated with values using
the background code in C++ which reads the entire letter and
populates these values and generates a text flie.

The issue is that when we align the data in the text area provided on
the GUI, the alignment gets disturbed when a text file is generated by
C++ code.

We have tried to solve this issue by using tab. This has solved the
issue to some extent but still fails for some letters.

The issue with tab is we find is due to the tab spacing.
For text area is 12 spaces whereas with a standard text file its 8
that seems to be the main cause.

We were able solve this issue to some extent by aligning the letter in
notepad and then copying the contents in test area provided in GUI.

This helped us in generating the test file using the C++ code which is
properly aligned and as expected.
But leaving the alignment on GUI as improper.

We are looking for a solution where both and the text fie generated
the text is aligned properly

The sample letter that we use is as follows , it is properly alligned
in the DB clob but when you see in text area its allignment gets

We are using a similar text area as used here. If u type letter and
format it in notepad and paste it here the alignment gets disturbed
this is the main issue.
