As described here, the problem comes from using tabs in the markdown. Unfortunately it seems that there's still an inconsistency between how the server and client side handles that situation, though. –  Tim Stone Apr 30 '11 at 17:43
    
You could at least have made your question demonstrate the problem. –  Uphill Luge Apr 30 '11 at 17:58
    
@Tim client side issue makes perfect sense. Thanks. @hans I think the images I linked demonstrate the problem? –  JIStone Apr 30 '11 at 18:13

Probably caused by mixing tabs and spaces, see How does The Editor Handle Tab Characters? –  Arjan Apr 30 '11 at 18:16

Tim Stone is correct; this resulted from an inconsitency between server-side and client-side tab handle. This is fixed now, and as you can see, the preview now looks like the rendered version.
