Out of curiosity, do you know what their objections to indenting with spaces was? I've always found it significantly more reliable and manageable than using tabs. I'd be curious about arguments to the contrary.

    PBP advocates using spaces, so their objection, such as it is, is to the use of tabs.

    The Tabs best practice is one that I use: no "arguments to the contrary" from me.

    I'm sure others with different preferences will provide their views on the subject.

      My apologies. I'd meant to post my query to the parent of your post.

        No worries — I've requested reparenting.
