Hi Kenneth,

The examples you give below are correct (with the exception of the number of spaces used to indent the code in the else blocks).

Please file a bug on bugs.webkit.org and attach a patch.  The webkit.org web site is in the svn repository, so you may create patches against the HTML.

Hi there,

I'm having a question regarding the coding style.

According to 2. An else statement should go on the same line as a
preceding close brace.

I would always need a brace when using if-else, in order to but the
else statement on the same line as the preceding close brace, is this
or would something like this is OK:

if (condition)

And what about this case

if (condition)
else {

It would be nice to have this defined in the coding style,  as well as
adding the case that when you have a comment inside a one line if
statement you will need braces, like

if (condition) {
     // comment

Cheers, Kenneth
