The One True Style of indentation:
this seems to be a very emotional subject.
i use tab, unless i don't have the space, then i use 2 to 4 spaces. i remember reading somewhere that it's supposed to be a tab.
but after reading all this, it sounds like 2 spaces is the best bet. so i'm changing.
Use two parentheses: (Like this: :) )
Use one parenthesis: (Like this: :)
Reverse direction of the smiley: (Like this: (: )
Use angle/square brackets instead of parentheses
Use C-style commenting to set the smiley off from the closing parenthesis
Make the smiley a dunce: (:>
I disapprove of emoticons
