Mangling code or tab separated data:
This is tab delimited data
Rendering of code blocks break tabs.
This is bad for example
- for code that require tabs (Example).
- for posts where users paste
- and in general ... rude :P
When respondents copy the data or code from a question they get spaces instead of tabs, even if questioner has used tabs. If one click edit the tabs are present, but not in the HTML rendering. Code snippets also get a four space indentation where tab is used.
tabs be preserved or at least be an opt out?
CSS has tab-size which can be used as a optional configuration for those who want 1 or 32 spaces per tab or what ever :P
