Does your SGML Declaration include "SHORTREF NONE" or "SHORTREF

&#TAB; is one of the short reference delimiters in the "reference
delimiter set" defined in ISO 8879.  "SHORTREF NONE" disables use of
the delimiters in the "reference delimiter set", whereas "SHORTREF
SGMLREF" enables them.

The other thing to check is whether "TAB" is declared as a function
character.  The typical function character portion of the SGML
Declaration is:

FUNCTION RE                13
         RS                10
         SPACE             32
         TAB      SEPCHAR   9
