Dear all,

I think the following statement

,----[ (info "(emacs)Basic Indent") ]
|    When entering lines of new code, use `C-j' (`newline-and-indent'),
| which is equivalent to <RET> followed by <TAB>.  `C-j' at the end of a
| line creates a blank line and then gives it the appropriate indentation.

is not quite correct. There's a slight difference between "C-j at the
end of a line" and "<RET> followed by <TAB>": The function
'newline-and-indent' eats up trailing whitespace while <RET> <TAB> does

My proposal is to mention this fact in the documentation.
