Hi all,

How do I turn off auto-indent in Vim for my HTML files? I prefer to
flush left everything and create blank lines at transitions.

Thanks,

Maybe setl noautoindent / setl noai will do?

Add a file: ~/.vim/indent/html.vim containing:

let b:did_indent = 1
set noautoindent

I think that should be

let b:did_indent = 1
setlocal noautoindent
let b:undo_indent = "setlocal autoindent<"

In that way, any non-html buffers created during that Vim session
will have the global 'autoindent' setting.

Regards,
Gary
