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;

I won't rest till it's the best ...
