The Vim command :retab will reformat all the tabs in a file according to your tabstop and expandtab preferences. See :h retab.

Vim can save whatever document you're editing as HTML, and it even saves the colors of the vim syntax highlighting in the HTML. Do :h 2html to find out how. For some reason the conversion seems to work better if you have line numbering turned off.

Add this line to your bash profile:

alias g="gvim --remote-silent"

Generate a key on your local machine with ssh-keygen. You can reasonably accept the defaults by hitting enter at each prompt. Then, upload the public key you just generated to your remote machine: ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub myusername@myserver.com. You'll no longer need to type your password for ssh functions. This is especially handy if you're editing remote files with gvim's netrw script.

UPDATE: The script mentioned above isn't necessary. Just copy and paste the contents of id_rsa.pub into the ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file on the remote host.
