Follow-up Comment #5, sr #110582 (project administration):

[comment #4 comment #4:]
> On further thought, there is a competing interest for verbatim blocks on
whether they should look right in the browser, or copy correctly for later
Copying is supported via the 'Quote' button; using browser facilities will
lose many features like links, lists and so on.

> ...savannah is altering the tabs that the user entered.  But it is doing
this by converting each tab to a _fixed_ number of spaces,
Yes; the other options I can see are:

* leave tabs as is, and the browser will condense them to a single space;
* replace every tab with a single non-condensable space.

Either looks worse to me.
