Menu Item Caption - \a for right aligned Accelerator?
I know that the tab character (\t) jumps the menu caption text into the next 'column', so all accelerators line up in the menu, but I heard that \a is supposed to right align any text that follows it, and this is not the case on my machine (MSVC++ 6.0, WinXP)... I know this is not a big deal, and some programs leave the accelerators left aligned in the menus, but WinXP definitely allows right alignment, as MSVC++ does this itself in its own menus.
What is the proper escape sequence for right alignment within the menu captions, if it is not \a?
Note: I have tried all the letters a..z watching the sample display in realtime, but have not compiled every one, so there remains a possibility that the realtime sample display is incorrect.
Also: I have checked the resource file, and the resource editor is properly storing the \a sequence in it, so this is not the problem.
