script type
This plugin will highlight tabs and trailing spaces on a line, with the ability to toggle the highlighting on and off. Using highlighting to illuminate these characters is preferrable to using listchars and "set list" because it allows you to copy from the vim window without getting listchars shrapnel in your buffer.

The highlighting is done on a per buffer basis, and can be toggled on and off easily (the default binds to F3 if it's unbound).
install details
Drop in your plugins directory and you're all set. Customization stuff can be found in the Documentation section of the script file.
