The same thing has held true with art. The more colors I have the more quickly things turn muddy brown. Music, same thing. I like to play all the notes at once.
And perhaps, too many choices can adversely affect one's writing style. Maybe one should always try to define, or at least feel inwardly, a subset of words that informs the diction of a piece?
As for LJ s2 style, it proves to be easy enough once the correct code is found for the style. Attempting to write code simply by studying the s2 language itself was not enough. I needed to go through the many good tutorials at the s2expressive page also to find correct examples of css to make things easier. When it comes to this style you can rely on the examples given by av8rmike. I was able to find everything I needed from his past posts. His stuff always works flawlessly. Thanks Mike!
