comment Is there a standardized practice for ordering attributes in HTML tags?
Weeeell, you could shave of whole micro-seconds of processing time by putting ng-if first ;-) Hmmm, seriously, maybe put ng- at the end, as they may override previous tags?

comment What are good habits for designing command line arguments?
Why do you want to reinvent the wheel? Do you have a lot slack in your deadline for coding and debugging something which has already been coded and debugged long ago? You don't say which language you are coding in, but unless it is extremely esoteric, it probably as a port of getopt(). If not, there are command line option parsers for 21 languages at Rosetta Code rosettacode.org/wiki/Parse_command-line_arguments

comment Declaration confusion in pointers
I see what you say. But it's not just a link - "declare p as array 5 of pointer to pointer to char" is a valid answer. it just lacks the pretty ascii art ;-)

comment How to analyze a code of a web application which is running?
@LightnessRacesinOrbit You can't debug PHP from the client side (if you can, I would love to know how, as I hate debugging AJAX, even on localhost)

That deserves to be posted as the answer. It also deserves mega up-votes for introducing us to that site.

comment Methods of debugging code (Nightmare situation)
Yup, start logging & tracing. Also start documenting, and adding comments. Bit by bit, it will all add up. Also, you say that you are lucky enough to still have some of the original coders in the company, if not the team. Push management to get accecss to them If possible, persuade them that they would rather produce some docs than be constantly approached with questions.

Who needs an expensive lawyer? Why not just ask Microsoft?

IMO, code review is more about checking whether the code does what the design spec says that it ought to than any of those (also important) points which you list.

comment How can one demonstrate client site website content after the sites have been updated?
I just wanted to clarify that. The fact that he was searching in the Wayback machine indicates that they are/were public. But I wasn't sure if 100% were.
