The computer ignores so-called "white space" except as the blanks, tabs, newlines, carriage returns, formfeeds, and comments separate tokens. As an unfortunate consequence, only the rare coders - in fact, maybe only the elusive "code poets" - are fastidious about how they are visually presenting in their code. The rub is that the worst torture anyone can inflict upon a coder is making him or her read another coder's code. Such as during the the "code walk-throughs" which are part and parcel of the software development process performed at industrial scale. Enter the so-called "code stylist" - akin to the "food stylist" whose calling is to make a dish look good for the camera. Code reviews are arguably more effective after a code stylist has dressed up the code. C and Java are encrypted into 1's and 0's - and squirreled away - but Javascript abounds in plaintext. Using what is available, Francis Gurtowski tries his hand at code rendering. He offers sample source code and a corresponding keyword cross reference in a single volume.
