cpbldn and others (including me) are/were probably confused by this format, so here's how to read it:
Zeros = String played open
Any other #'s = Played as if WHOLE fretboard is being used
For example, with the capo on 2, most others would tab the beginning as:

e|-------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---0-------1-------3--------/12----12--12----12----12--12----|
G|-------0-------0-------0---------0-------0-------0-------0---|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------0-------2--------/10------10------10------10------|
E|---3---------------------------------------------------------|

but on this tab, it's:
e|-------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---0-------3-------5--------/14----14--14----14----14--14----|
G|-------0-------0-------0---------0-------0-------0-------0---|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------0-------4--------/12------12------12------12------|
E|---5---------------------------------------------------------|

I think I like this way a lot better than the standard way, and it didn't take long to get used to it. Although it's a different format, if you read it as QC intended it to be read, this is, from what I can tell, a perfect tab. 5-Stars!
