Ouch!! (*blush!*)  I didn't know that, but looking at the file copy
of it, I see you're quite correct. Thanks for the catch!

I use "vi" for composing news articles, and while I am generally
careful to never type tabs in source code, occasionally "vi" will
"helpfully" insert them anyway if I do a ">%" ["shift right to
matching bracket"] and some of the shifted text ends up being on or
past a tab stop. !@^%$#!@^!# (*grumph!*)

I'll see if I can find a setting that stops that...
