Tab Separated Values should be a synonym to as one of the Character Separated Values as it is a delimiter that can be used as an alternative to the comma ,.

I know states it is for comma separated values, but the handling of both file-types is very similar and overlapping.

Currently there is one question tagged (which is pretty surprising), but I don't see a reason to destroy it or re-tag it. A search for related tags for tab separated values did not reveal any additional tags.

A rudimentary search reveals 14 questions that could also benefit from the tag, but only one has the tag.

I added it as a synonym, found at csv synonyms. We'll see if it gets 4 votes to be approved.

I might also retag some questions about tsv to add more bulk to the tag.
