This is another perfect example of something that is a religious issue.  
One can make good arguments for using spaces for indentation, and one can 
make good arguments for using tabs for indentation.  When one is down in 
the trenches churning out a solution for a client, what matters most is 
that one be consistent with whatever one chooses, as there are always 
going to be people who both agree and disagree with the choice.  Better to 
just make the choice and then get on with getting the work done.
