Damn, that's stupid!

A tab has a byte value of '9'. How it's is displayed is completely arbitary, 
subjective, and the job of your editor. The fact the file will look
different between editors is a good thing. The idea all source files should 
not be able to be displayed any otherway then how the author first created

Quite moot however....GOD has already decided.
