Try (setq-default indent-tabs-mode nil).  Then, your future
emacs-created files will use only spaces to indent, and there's no
issue of how another editors interprets a tab, since there shouldn't
be any TAB characters in your documents anymore.  Although I have no
idea why you'd ever want to use another editor. :)
