Fortran mode assumes that you follow certain conventions that simplify the task of understanding a Fortran program well enough to indent it properly:
Fortran compilers generally ignore whitespace outside of string constants, but Fortran mode does not recognize these keywords if they are not contiguous. Constructs such as `else if' or `end do' are acceptable, but the second word should be on the same line as the first and not on a continuation line.
If you fail to follow these conventions, the indentation commands may indent some lines unaesthetically. However, a correct Fortran program retains its meaning when reindented even if the conventions are not followed.
