-      <p>To reduce the chances of you making poor whitespace, line break, or tab mistakes,
you 
-        should use the features of the text editor of your choice.  Many text editors have
options 
-        like: "Strip trailing whitespaces from lines when saving" and "Convert new tabs to
spaces."
-        It's helpful to everyone if you go ahead and configure your editor to prevent you
from making
-        lazy mistakes in the future.
