You have a valid point (++ for that) but I still want to leave the choice to the persons responsible of the code. If a team chooses to use spaces it is fine with me. The result is still the thing I am most interested in. If the code is formatted in a way that keeps it maintainable and I can use a formatter when changes are required I am happy with it. ruzam said it nicely, formatter should be the only standard if a formatting standard must exist.

Overall, in my list code formatting is not the most important coding standard. There are more important things to keep in mind and they are all related to design issues like data encapsulation, module/object/function re-usability and independence (allows unit testing of a single coherent set of functionality) and so on. I do not want to belittle formatting, but it can be automated making it less important.
