Discussion on: Which contentious opinions in programming actually matter?

As always, it depends. Without more context, my gut reaction is that if your old inline styles are causing precedence issues and making it difficult to move forward with your project because you're always having to go back and deal with these frustrating issues, I'd say it's probably time to go in and refactor those inline styles. Those constant nagging issues don't just slow you down, they make developers unhappy. And unhappy developers quit, which is another major cost. Just something to think about!

good answer! i suppose thats a good rule for all of development - follow a particular way of thinking until there is overwhelming evidence to do something else!
