I would like to visualize tabs. Here, I almost succeeded:
(setq whitespace-style '(face trailing tabs lines-tail indentation))
faceis needed for other things to work;
trailingvisualizes trailing blanks just perfectly;
lines-tailhighlights tails of too long lines — perfect;
indentationaccording to documentation should show tabs when you've set up Emacs to indent with spaces and vice versa.
tabs doesn't work? Two possibilities:
- It's tricky. To make it work you need extra knowledge.
- Well, it's just currently broken.
Before reporting a bug, I decided to ask if anyone succeeded in visualizing tabs at any position (I'm particularly interested in indentation). Basically, if there is a tab character in file, I want to see it.
