The difference between tabs and spaces is invisible on a great
number of the devices on which people display code.

Indentation is visible, but the underlying structure of it may not
be.  (It's worse than that, because for instance "   	" is
quite hard to distinguish from the quite similar "	".)  And at
least one of them is clearly wrong.
