This is a reformulation of this MO question which recieved little or no attention due to the fact that the OP gave no motivation whatsoever. I found the question quite interesting and decided to give it another try (if this is not OK please let me know and I´ll delete this post).

It is known that if $G$ is an **abelian** compact topological group then it contains a dense subgroup $H$ which is countably tight (in fact Frechet-Urysohn). However the following is open (at least it was a few years ago):

If $G$ is a compact group, must $G$ contain a dense subspace of countable tightness?

This is problem 4.1.1 in "Topological Groups and Related Structures" by A.Arhangelskii and M.Thachenko. Problem 4.1.7 (also open) in the same book is:

Is it true that every homogeneous compact space contains a dense subspace of countable tightness?

My guess is that there should be known examples of (non-homogeneous) compact spaces such that any dense subspace has uncountable tightness, but I could not find any. So I have two questions:

1) Is there such a compact space?

2) For a cardinal $\kappa > 2^{\aleph_0}$ what is a dense subspace of $[0,1]^\kappa$ that has countable tightness?

Perhaps the answer to 2) is that there is none, and $[0,1]^\kappa$ is indeed a counterexample for the second quoted question, but I wouldn´t expect that. Note that if $\kappa \leq 2^{\aleph_0}$ then $[0,1]^\kappa$ is separable and any countable dense subspace would do the trick.

**Edit:** As Santi suggests in a comment to his answer of 2), the space $X=\beta\mathbb{N} \setminus \mathbb{N}$ is a good candidate for 1), but I still don´t know for sure. Some facts about $X$ that might be relevant:
a) $X$ is compact,
b) any dense subset of $X$ has size at least $2^{\aleph_0}$,
c) the tightness of $X$ is $2^{\aleph_0}$,
d) there are $R$-points in $X$, i.e. there exist an open $U \subseteq X$ and a point $x \in \overline{U}$ such that $x \notin \overline{A}$ for any $A \subseteq U$ with $|A|<2^{\aleph_0}$.
