in reply to The One True Style of indentation:

Which way is the best is pretty much irrelevant for me now. The "return-space-space" twitch is permanently hardwired into my brain. I've got more chance of learning Dvorak than changing away from two space indents.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    I'm sure you really, really believe that, but it's just practiced behavior. If you practiced another behavior long enough -- say, if the company you write programs for develops a coding standard calling for four-space indents -- then you'd learn that too. It's just syntax, and you can pick it up with a little practice and an open mind.

      Then I'd write a keyboard daemon such that whenever I hit "return-space-space" it got to the word processor as "return-space-space-space-space". :)
