    The "Leave space between name and *" is confusing. Does 'name'
    refer to the type or variable. I hope Michael was not recommending:

    char * p;

    How about saying:

    Do not leave a space between a * and the following
    variable name, nor between multiple *, when used
    to declare pointers:

    char *p;
    struct foo **bar;
