Alan: there are mentions to cc-mode all around csharp-mode.el. Your name
is prominently mentioned on the Acknowledgements section too. It would
be even nicer if CC Mode were capitalized correctly, though. :-)

The function hook I recommended you to try on a previous message
activated the "C#" style, which is defined into csharp-mode:

(defun my-csharp-mode-fn ()
  (c-set-style "C#")
  (setq tab-width 4)
  (setq indent-tabs-mode t))

(add-hook 'csharp-mode-hook 'my-csharp-mode-fn)

It sets c-basic-offset to 4. So with that setup you should see tabs
instead of spaces too. I wonder why you didn't.
