This basically doesn't work (quite unrelated to the tex code). 
The PDF viewers have all their own mind here and none of them is
really "code friendly". See e.g. 


It works sometimes a bit better if the PDF is tagged, but there too
you can't currently rely on four spaces staying four spaces (and not
all PDF reader understand tagging).

Better attach files with code.
