I see in this maintainability thread an echo of what experienced programmers
preach as a virtue: Make your work easy for somebody else to work on after
you. Programming has an entirely different set of issues about style and
clarity, but in the end it still boils down to "time is money" whether
you're reformatting a spaced-and-tabbed Word document or puzzling your way
through some horrible spaghetti code.

The discussion of bad formatting in Word makes me smile, because I'm dealing

with that kind of work in this job. I handle documents from the QA group,
and they have a history (still being written today, sigh) of using hard
returns and tabs instead of the formatting available in the styles.
