I don't quite follow. What is a speechmark?

You got to show me an example of this. The indentation is all redone, which means there could be a couple of bugs in it (so far I have found one myself). Nevertheless, 5 times wrong seem a little too much.

I didn't find any function or variable called auto-indent in Emacs. If you are referring to the automatic indentation when you press return, the README tells you how to turn it off. Marcus ------------------------------------ If you find that life spits on you calm down and pretend it's raining
