Blank lines in theme files, taste great or less filling? (4 posts)

    No really, they bug me. But I see them in EVERY theme. Aren't they 'weight' albeit marginal? And in most themes I see 2 or 3 at a time, what gives? Uggh! One or two, here or there to delineate sections of code or styles, okay... bah! Enough.

    I noticed there weren't no mention of them in the coding standards doc over in the development section...

    What is quality?

    Quality is how we rate what we perceive, conceive. Didn't you ever read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Mechanics? Sheesh.

    Empty lines often come from Mac/Unix/PC having different interpretations and handling of same. In a perfect world, blah, blah blah.

    Bottom line is they prolly were not there when the person wrote the theme, although double-spacing is used by some for readability.

    Motorcycle "Maintenance"! Which actually ties in nicely with readability.

    Ciao!
