Cobol - and Fortran - didn't interpret indents semantically. The coding sheet (or individual line, for those who never saw a coding sheet) was divided into column (or fields of the line), with different functions: Label, line continuation marker, structure level markers, line sequence number etc. This was defined by the column (/field): Within the main field, you could indent or not without changing the semantics. The coding sheets had heavy lines separating the columns; you never misplaced any element accidentally.

So even though positioning (in one column, or another column) was significant, it wasn't quite like Python but far more controlled and well defined, and it was very difficult to make mistakes that could pass by without being detected. Those languages had far worse defects ... Smile | :)
