actually C-c C-e C-s ... but yes, you are right, Pooya.
I have now fixed the documentation there,
thank you very much!

Hmm.. strange you can't find it. It is still the "data base" of
all the ESS (indentation/alignment..) styles.
If you have loaded ESS,
C-h v ess-style-alist
not only shows you its content, but even contains quite a bit
more documentation about the meaning of the different styles'
parts (i.e. variables).

you're welcome ...
and Merry Christmas to you and all ESS users!
