Tab/Spaces defaults for Auto-Mode

By default, if you use option Auto (determine from content) for syntaxes, HippoEDIT assumes that you can use Tabs, if there is not sufficient data for statistical analysis of existing source (you have created new document for example).

To change this default, and instruct HippoEDIT to use spaces in such cases you can use following flag in settings.xml:

<Formatting>
   <AutoModeUseTabs>false</AutoModeUseTabs>
</Formatting>

Default is true.
