Here is a screenshot:

It seems that when hitting return, the second line is indented FAR to much to the right.

Does you dreamweaver do it this way? I have tested this on cs3 and cs4.

It's a matter of preference, but most code I've seen has four spaces for each {, for example:

$(document).ready(function() {

Usually you'll have to de-dent the first line back to just four spaces, but from there on the indentation should line up correctly.
