Question Writer guidelines spec - not sure I understand it

Can anyone provide me an explanation of this writers guidelines spec for a magazine publisher:

"Use straight copy only with tabs no boldface, italics, underlining, caps or typographical variants of any kind."

I, of course, understand using no bold, italics, etc. but what does "straight copy only with tabs" mean?

I assume it means to use the tab key to indent new paragraphs?

Slightly funny wording, isn't it?

I'd take it to mean the same as AG, above, i.e. that you may (or should) use tabs to indent the start of each paragraph.
