• Add extra newline characters to set apart special sections of the
source documentfor instance, around paragraphs or tables.
The task of maintaining the indentation of your source file ranges from
trivial to onerous. Some text editors, such as Emacs, manage the
indentation automatically; others, such as common word processors,
couldn't care less about indentation and leave the task completely up to
you. If your editor makes your life difficult, you might consider striking a
compromise, perhaps by indenting the tags to show structure, but leav-
ing the actual text without indentation to make modifications easier.
No matter what compromises or stands you make on source-code style,
it's important that you adopt one. You'll be very glad you did when you
go back to that document you wrote three months ago searching for
that really cool trick you did with...now, where was that?
