I called it strange because I've never seen the spacing INSIDE the parens... none of the major indenting style IIRC do it this way. I was asking aboutthe reasoning behind them (or maybe you simply like it that way).

Yes, that's somewhat standard. MFC does it that way too.

Yes, I concur that globals should be visibly marked (if only to look for something to remove!). Static are less used, I never had the need to mark them.
