Been following the recent update to the Skeleton CSS framework (loving it!), and one of the many updates made was to change tabbed indents to spaces. Am just wondering if there's any reason for one or the other apart from personal preference?
Spacebar is a bigger button, easier to tap : )
I think it would just be a personal thing or automatic formatting happening as spaces are used in the CSS but tabs are used in the HTML
Would it be related to file size? Would a space take up less memory/space than a tab?
Good question, I wonder??
No idea but I hate spaces for indents. I've been using a different IDE to usual and when you delete through indents it goes by spaces instead of by tabs.
I think a space and a tab take up the same memory each, but you would need more of them with spaces so use more space.
I suspect it has to do with lines going too far across the screen with multiple nested elements?
I suppose the more you use tabs, the more lines you would create, the greater the file size.
I would put it down to personal preference. Who cares about the odd half a kb. It's not 1996.

I say this nearly every time someone gives me a minified custom js file. But 1996 was so good, remember the animated spinning soft drink cans and flames on the cool kids websites?
Just saw this on the web (must be true) and thought of @dave
