I can't resist jumping into the WS wars :-)

First I should say that I use the style the company that signs my
checks tells me to. I am informed that the rulebook is "The Elements
of Java Style." Those sage purveyors of infinite wisdom chose their
very first code-specific topic to be indentation (there were 4
previous topics related to general issues). They recommend 2 SPACES
and so that's how my IDE is configured.

Personally, I prefer spaces to tabs as they lead to fewer surprises.
If I owned this company, I'd say 4 spaces, but I don't. Instead I
follow the rulebook. (Well, almost. I can't abide using a newline
after a "}" to start a catch or else block. A programmer has to draw
the line somewhere! :-)
