Any ISO/IEC 10646-1 (from a user's perspective, equivalent to Unicode)
character listed in the subset defined by the "char" EBNF production in
XML 1.0 Recommendation can be referenced by a numeric character reference
as per the XML spec.

HORIZONTAL TAB is character number 9.
In your document, &#9; or &#x9; will do.

Note that the char production says certain characters like the control
characters 0 through 8 are not allowed in XML at all, not even by
character reference. This sometimes causes problems for XSLT users who
want to emit bytes with those values in non-XML output. Post-processing
is usually required.
