Comment #16 on issue 839 by chip...@gmail.com: Option to convert tabs in
the diff to (n) spaces
So unfortunately, the CSS for tab sizes is pretty unsupported in most
browsers. Firefox 4 has it, and Opera 10.60, but Chrome/Safari/IE do not
yet (nor do they provide alternatives). So we can't really do this through
CSS yet. The only other solutions are styling all tabs and attempting to
represent that size with a width:, or processing the file and converting to
spaces. I'm not really happy with either of those yet, and feel that maybe
we'll wait a bit more to see how this is supported in browsers.
I do have a patch that implements the CSS and provides global and
per-repository options for it. I just don't want to advertise it too much
when it's barely supported.
