Use tabs for indentation.

This is not up for debate. Please configure your editor to use tabs instead of spaces. Tabs let everyone use the level of indentation that they prefer.

PascalClass for classes and singletons, camelCase for variables, functions, and members, css-case for HTML classes/IDs and file/folder names.
