Have written the following function, but tabs and trailing spaces are not being 
highlighted.  For some reason, hitting the tab key does not introduce a tab.

(defun indent-tabs ()

  (setq custom-tab-width 2)
  (setq whitespace-style '(face tabs tab-mark trailing))
  (setq-default indent-tabs-mode nil)

     '(whitespace-tab ((t (:background "#636363")))))
