I think the most important thing is to pick a style and stick to it religiously.

I stick religiously to, and hotly defend, my personal standards—until someone convinces me that they've got better ones, at which point I adopt those with born-again passion and deride those who use the silly old convention.

Just checking: It is true that, once you find the One True Way of indenting, good code writes itself, right?

    Be wary of change for change sake, nuances change often, but good style is enduring.
