The fact is: my indenting style is just too unruly for scripting. Oh,
other people may shudder at the look of my HTML source but I like it the
way it is, and I'm the only one making changes in my own pages.
For Vim scripts, ":set autoindent smartindent" is good enough for me.
Even 'cindent' I don't use, but then I don't program in C anyway, and in
CSS my coding style is, shall I say, "clear but unusual".

sound like a frustrated old man who never made a success, an
eight-ulcer man on a four-ulcer job, and all four ulcers working. I
have never met you, but if I do you'll need a new nose and plenty of
beefsteak and perhaps a supporter below. Westbrook Pegler, a
guttersnipe, is a gentleman compared to you. You can take that as more
of an insult than as a reflection on your ancestry."
