I didn't consciously use tabs, actually I would rather avoid them. That
said, my posting looks correctly indented in my "sent" folder and also
in the copy received from my newsserver. What could also have an
influence is line endings. I'm using Thunderbird on win32 here, acting
as news client to comp.lang.python. Or maybe it's your software (or
maybe some software in between) that fails to preserve formatting.
