At least the color makes the names stick out.
This occurs on help files that appear to TAB rather than uses simple spaces. As you can see from the top, regular output is correctly colored, but the tabbed WARLORDS file shows obvious distortion.

noticed this also when IRE was prieviewing the tears of polaris server, assumed it was because Polaris was buggy somehow.

No, Mudlet cannot process \t in a general manner.
But you can easily trigger on \t and replace it with as many spaces as you like - or what works best for your MUD.

in case anyone was wondering:

Trigger:
regex: \t
code:
[syntax=lua]
local c = 1
while selectString("\t",c) > -1 do
replace(" ")
end
[/syntax]
