It's easy to see how quickly this can turn into a bikeshed debate.

Regarding the tab widths, I'm curious to know how some of you handle
pseudo source code, such as XHTML/CSS. Using 8-col tab widths in HTML
can get ridiculous due to the nesting involved.

Also, do you guys setup autocmds in vim for handling all non-code
files, or do you set up autocmds explicitly for source code files and
leave the default tabwidth to something more conservative?  I work
with such a mix of file types so frequently that I'm not sure which
practise to apply by default.
