There's an article on the TECHWR-L web site that can help get you started:

http://www.techwr-l.com/techwhirl/magazine/writing/styleguide.html
("Developing a Departmental Style Guide," by by Jean Hollis Weber)

It includes a sample style guide in PDF format.

My gut feeling is that most large organizations these days pick either
the Microsoft or Sun style guides as a base standard and then create a
local style guide to document things they do that are special or
different.
