For your own work, find one that works for you and stick with it.

If you're looking for suggestions, I tend to use a modified PEAR coding 
style--with a just a handful of exceptions where they got stupid--when I 
write PHP. It's a lot like K&R/1TBS, so it's comfortable to me... And it 
helps that several of the projects I work on have compatible coding 
standards.

See:
