Many? I thought I'd caught them all - bar maybe one or two.

Yes, a "$!% tab.

It means that I've:
1) Stopped my main IDE using tabs at all - it isn't able to show whitespace
and those editors that CAN show whitespace are the ones that have messed up
by changing the encoding and all manner of other hassles.
2) I've gone through the patch in vi which is fairly useful for this task as
although it doesn't highlight whitespace from tabs, it can adjust the tab
size making it easier to spot.
Why, after all this time, can't we all have editors that do the same thing? We
should be free to choose the editor that we prefer, but there's no standard
for things like this - it's really frustrating that each editor implements
whitespace and indenting in such different ways.
