Mac OS Vim Formatting Issue

Adrian Keister
I'm having significant trouble with the way my Mac OS is displaying a particular file compared to gVim on Windows or Linux. This appears to be a problem with the built-in vim, although I've found that even brew install vim gives me a vim that behaves exactly the same way. Certainly MacVim is displaying it the same wrong way. I've attached the file that's behaving differently: test.txt. I've also uploaded the screenshots showing how the indenting looks completely different. Note: on the Mac, I can't even navigate to the true beginning of the line (directly under the initial 'I.' in the very beginning of the file) on every line. I've tried the troubleshooting page here:

with no joy. Any ideas? Thanks for your time!
