Was browsing through the styles and noticed a few duplicates, with the same name:

You'll notice the second ones in each set seem to have extra data in the URL, and on their pages is little to no information about the style, as opposed to the other (first) link in each set.

Seems that somebody was looking for the style, couldn't find it (likely due to the special characters, in some of those styles, pushing them to the end of the section), so they just created a new style.

It would be a good idea to merge the data from the "extra" styles to their counterparts, and just delete the extra styles from the database. That seems like something an admin would need to do...

I don't know about most of the styles darkflux mentions but i agree 200% with him in what concerns Bossanova. please get rid of it and replace it with correct BOSSA NOVA.

yes, bossa and nova are two separate words, which together mean "new trend".
however, it is not a compound word, but a phrase, just like "new trend".
you wouldn't say "newtrend", as many people might not understand.
there is a Wikipedia article on the genre, too, and even its references (which include two dictionaries) list it as two separate words.
