$indent-width - Global indentation width in characters $buffer-indent-width - Buffer indentation width in characters
$indent-width defines the default indentation width assumed by the editor, this defines the number of characters the indent(2) command should use for indenting text. Once the value is set then all new buffers that are subsequently created assume an indent value of $indent-width. The default value when omitted is 4 characters.
$buffer-indent-width specifies the indent to use in a buffer, the value of $indent-width is used as a default when the buffer is created. Modification of the $buffer-indent-width value causes the buffer indentation width to be modified. The value is typically set by the fhook-xxx macro when initializing a buffer using the Language Templates.
$buffer-indent-width and $indent-width were introduced into MicroEmacs in November 2004.
