See this screenshot:

 

 

As you can see, lines that don't contain anything don't have any tabs characters in them. VS2003, 5, and 8 all indented new lines as you pressed the Return key, VS2010 doesn't: it only indents the line once you type something on that line. If you press Return again you get \r\n\r\n rather than \r\n\t\t\t\r\n.

 

When typing code this isn't a huge problem for me because the caret is magically in the right place 90% of the time, but when I move the caret around with my arrow keys it often ends up in Column 1 when it should be in Column 3 (see screenshot, line 98) where it would be if empty lines were indented.

 

 

Apparently:  By Design, Won't Fix.
