Ah, true. I hadn't thought about that. I guess it's not that bad then.

Same here. I don't use such blocks very often after all.

Meanwhile, could you please reformat a bit your patch (no more than 80
columns, no parents on their own line), add a commit message followed
by TINYCHANGE (unless you have signed FSF papers already) and use git
format-patch for the output?

You may still indent regions without examples blocks, you can also
indent automatically each line you're writing.

I rarely indent globally buffers I wrote.

Actually indentation is partially taken into account. Some \hspace*{1cm}
are added. On the other hand, HTML enforces indentation with the help of
&nbsp;.
