  The style guide is “dead”: long live the dynamic style guide!
Style guides fill the gap between the need for consistency and the means of being consistent, provided that someone’s available to enforce the guidelines.
For example, most general-purpose style guides don’t address the needs of the people you’re actually writing for; if you’ve chosen an appropriate guide, it may mention these needs, but because the authors didn’t know your actual audience, they couldn’t possibly focus their guide on those needs as well as you can.
If your style guide states that certain phrases are illegal, provide a custom macro that searches the entire file for these phrases and replaces them with the officially sanctioned replacement phrases (e.g., to change "on the basis of" to "based on").

 Learning Styles
When mismatches exist between learning styles of most students in a class and the teaching style of the professor, the students may become bored and inattentive in class, do poorly on tests, get discouraged about the courses, the curriculum, and themselves, and in some cases change to other curricula or drop out of school.
The Index of Learning Styles is a self-scoring questionnaire for assessing preferences on four dimensions of the Felder-Silverman model.
The paper concludes that the choice of a model is almost irrelevant: teaching designed to address all dimensions on any of the models is likely to be effective, and all of the models lead to more or less the same instructional approach.

 The Chronicle: 8/13/2004: Style: a Pleasure for the Reader, or the Writer?
The paragon is The Elements of Style, which grew out of a self-published pamphlet that William Strunk, an English professor at Cornell in the early decades of the last century, handed out to his students, one of whom was E.B. White.
That is, they and their followers view style as an absence of faults -- an elimination of all grammatical mistakes and solecisms, of breeziness, opinions, clichés, jargon, mixed metaphors, passive-voice constructions, wordiness, and so on.
White understood that The Elements of Style offered a particular perspective on writing style and did not (as he wrote in the Introduction) "pretend to survey the whole field." Moreover, his own style, although outwardly plain, simple, orderly, and sincere, was also idiosyncratic, opinionated, and unmistakable.

 Textual Stylistics in Information Access
Style may be roughly defined as the 'manner' in which something is expressed, as opposed to the 'content' of a message.
Stylistic variation depends on author preferences and competence, familiarity, genre, communicative context, expected characteristics of the intended audience and untold other factors, and it is expressed through subtle variation in frequencies of otherwise insignificant features of a text that, taken together, are understood as stylistic indicators by a particular reader community.
The goal, therefore, is to address a rather wide range of issues, from theoretical questions and models about style, through annotation standards and methods, to algorithms for recognizing, clustering, and displaying these aspects.
