Neither do I -- that doesn't look too easy to read, to me.

Say, that looks like my code!

Exactly.  I haven't actually read their style guide, I just saw it 
mentioned somewhere recently and it's the only PHP style guide I've ever 
heard of, so I figured I'd pass it on.  The truth is that tastes vary, 
and unless everyone starts using Python (whose syntax I really like, 
though it was hard to get used to seeing "naked" variable names [no 
buck]), there will always be differences.

To the original poster:  One thing I've found, and have found is harder 
to achieve than it seems, is that the most important thing is to be 
consistent with your own style.  But as I've learned more and more about 
programming over the past few months, my style has definitely changed -- 
even within this same project!  I try to keep it consistent but I learn 
all kinds of new code-organizing techniques (like OOP), so it's not that
