To ensure good coding habits and techniques, are there any articles discussing good coding, nesting, and/or structuring habits to help keep my pages neat and lean? Or any considerations you guys do to keep things looking clean for your pages?

Most importantly, be sure to put each level of code on a new level of indentation.This is really difficult to read:

if(count($a) > 0) {echo "<div class='c'>";foreach($a as $x=>$n) {echo "$x: $n\n";}echo "</div>";}

This is much better:

if(count($a) > 0) {  echo "<div class='c'>";  foreach($a as $x=>$n) {	echo "$x: $n\n";  }  echo "</div>";}

Also, it's good to put comments frequently explaining what each portion of code is, so that if you have to go back to it, you'll know what it's doing.
