I feel there's a certain spirit of WordPress that makes the community
great and has helped it thrive.

There's nothing inherently wrong with using the style attribute here
and there, but I do feel it goes against this spirit. I'm sure most
WordPress developers will agree that using the style attribute just
doesn't feel right. To me, it just looks plain ugly - I dont even like
using them during development.

On the other hand, as a once-OO developer, I used to hate WordPress'
use of global variables all willy nilly. It's part of the spirit of
WordPress though, so I've learned to embrace, and even appreciate,
globals. So I definitely understand your views Sayontan. The spirit of
WordPress can sometimes be confusing, dogmatic, etc - but it's usually
for the best.

Time to get back to work. I'm sure we all have awesome stuff to build.
