I have a project which calls for frame/panel construction utilizing a center rail/stile. The height is about 20 inches, the width about 14 inches (two 6" panels with a center stile between them). They are the sides of this cabinet:

Is it ok to let the center stile "float"? Or should it always be glued (but obviously let the panels float). I guess if it is left to float and there is a lot of play, it won't look good. Also, if I let them float will I be compromising strength?
