Thanks, Ed. I used to use tabs, but recently have decided to discontinue
the practice in Java code at least. This is why it's just never come up
in all the years I've used Eclipse.
So, you're right...
Window -> Preferences -> Java -> Code Style -> Formatter -> Edit ->
Indentation -> Tab policy: Spaces only.
This appears to work fine now.
Thanks also to Nitin for replying. It appears that the wiggle above IS
how to configure the Java editor (which otherwise isn't listed
separately, I guess).
Best regards to all,
