The developer who asked me for a term ended up titling the document "Coding Standards," and used headings like Coding Safety, Conventions, etc. It looked pretty good to me.

She also used short, sharp, declarative instructions: "Make it like this. Do it like that."

My respect for her increases daily.

Thanks, everyone, for all your input.
