I would like to be able to show whitespace characters not only tabs but spaces as well. It just find it useful to see trailing whitespaces. in many editors you can set to display whitespace chars and you'll see sort of semi transparent dot's instead of spaces.

Reproducible: Always

Yah we need to do this.

We should switch tabshowspace to just showspaces, and have it show both.

ACETRANSITION

The Skywriter project has merged with Ajax.org's Ace project (the full server part of which is their Cloud9 IDE project). Background on the change is here:

http://mozillalabs.com/skywriter/2011/01/18/mozilla-skywriter-has-been-merged-into-ace/

The bugs in the Skywriter product are not necessarily relevant for Ace and quite a bit of code has changed. For that reason, I'm closing all of these bugs. Problems that you have with Ace should be filed in the Ace issue tracker at GitHub:
