I'd recommend being more elaborate:

set et    " Expand tabs
set ai    " Auto-indent
set sw=4  " Indent to 4 spaces
set ts=8  " Treat tabs as 8 columns
set si    " Smart indent
set sta   " Smart tab key handling
syn on    " Make syntax visible

" Make tabs visible if you're running gvim
if has("gui_running")
     set lcs=tab:»·,trail:·,extends:»,precedes:«
