Nitpick: in the first code block in the JavaScript section a small spelling 
error: "across multpile files" -> "across multiple files"

(yeah yeah, still learning git (see my other mail), PR will come)

I saw you applied/made those changes in github.com/owncloud/documentation, 
But there's another relevant URL, namely http://owncloud.org/dev/coding-style-

Having multiple URLs for the same/similar documentation is confusing and 
(currently?) they're not in sync.
Don't know a/the solution, but it's sth to keep an eye on and/or avoid.

Question (could well be my own ignorance):
Why define a tab as 4 spaces?
I thought the whole idea behind using tabs was so everyone can use their own 
preferred tab-width?
