I have seen your edit to several posts which says:
[I added UBB CODE tags to your source code to make it more readable. Please try to use them in the future -
This seems like a really useful thing to do. Could you please explain how to add these tags?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for asking!
You can retain the indentation and formatting by using the CODE tag. When you type your message, just enclose the block of text, which is usually a class between CODE and /CODE tags.
( Ofcourse, you will have to enclose them within [ and ]. I omitted them intentionally so that UBB doesnt treat the text above as code! ).
I know it might be an additional thing to do when you are typing a message, but that extra effort is worth it. Your post looks neat and clean. I encourage others to use code tags too, whenever and wherever possible. Infact there are a lot of other tags that makes your post looks pretty. Here is a list of UBB tags that you can use at JavaRanch.
Have fun!
