Hi Armando,

It could be that Notepad++ is using Tabs & hiding the fact from you.

You can check whether you are using spaces or tabs here ...

Within Notepad++, go to Settings, then preferences, then "Language Menu / Tab Settings".

In the "Tab Settings" box, is "Tab size :" set to 4 and the "Replace by space" checkbox checked ?

(This is probably the

something that automatically converts tabs to spaces or vice-versa

that Marilyn was asking about in your duplicate thread.)

Hope this helps

Are you connecting to your Linux box via putty - using left mouse click - drag - release to highlight text on my putty session = copy in that you can use right click to paste it

Thanks Janeice,

I've posted a couple of times; Last Sunday, and again yesterday.
So I just thought that I'd go for clarification.

Thanks All,

I'm now back on the 'Ranch and have passed Servlets-1 and submitted Servlets-2.
I'm also still on the inactive students list.
How do I get moved back to the Assignment Log ?

Thanks Greg..

I was hoping to pick up at the start of Servlets. So that's great.
I'll get started...

I was on the Cattle Drive until late 2004.
And I'd done most of the Servlets assignments.

But now I am looking to get back into the saddle.
So I think it's really worthwhile.
I like that it shows you that your way is not always the most elegant.
And I like that you are nudged towards a solution, so you always have to think of the alternatives.
Whilst adhering to a Style Guide as you would in any commercial organisation.
The 'Ranch may also help you over the "No Experience" hurdle when you are applying for jobs.

So, I can say that it's worth the money, and that it's worth the time and effort.

Hi y'all,
I just knew I'd be passing by this way again.
I've been thinking about coming by for a while now.
But there are a few questions ...
.. Should I re-register, or just pay again?
.. Where should I begin at, what with all the new fangled (to me) WAR and Ant and so on?

Getting ready to saddle up.
And join you on the 'Ranch again

... I can see the lights of the JavaRanch. But the illumination seems to be differently focused than the last time I passed by. I think I may need to return via one of the corrals I previously passed through. But which one ? Is it OK to rejoin the trail? Do I need to re-subscribe?

Hey, congrats Nick.
Keep roping them in.

... in a java source you may get away initially with individual strings, or even bunching them up together, but you may find that that style is reserved for the variable strings that you generate during execution. I have been asked whether I gain anything from "all these short strings".
