I suggest starting with the basics: Microsoft Manual of style and/or
Sun's style guide (if writing for software), and the Chicago manual of
Style. From there, roll your own and point to pre-fab ones where you
don't differ in style.

Please note that although people refer to _Read Me First_
as "Sun's style guide," it's not just Sun's own style. The
book is based on Sun's style but was revamped with new content
and "bleached" to be generic for the commercial, third-party
version from Prentice-Hall.
