Babel package makes latex indent first paragraph

Latex standard styles, like article or book, do not indent first paragraph, but babel package change this behaviour. For example, it indents all paragraphs when using spanish, even those after a heading.

If you want the first paragraph not being indented, you can comment out these two lines at your language file:

/usr/share/texmf/tex/generic/babel/spanish.ldf
...
%  \let\@afterindentfalse\@afterindenttrue
%  \@afterindenttrue


Of course, you can always manually remove indent starting any paragraph with '\noindent', or disable all paragraph indentation with '\parindent=0cm'.
