  1. Use Hard Tabs: Calculation code should use hard tabs (not spaces) for better readability within the calculation dialog box.
    When editing code within the calc dialog box you can use Option-Tab (Mac) or Control-Tab (Win) to insert tabs.
  2. Maintain spaces between function names and function parameters. This accommodates the cross-platform aspect of double-clicking to highlight  function names or parameters on Windows.
  3. Line endings with semicolons: Should not include a space when the line of code is considered "complete". This is done in order to provide a "continuation clue" about the code being read. See the following example. Note that line 8 7 is an If() statement which uses multiple lines. The space after the test parameter of the If () functions indicates that the function has not been "completed" or "closed". Compare this to lines 2-5 where each variable declaration of the Let() function is considered completed.
