Hi David:

I have a book by Microsoft about GUI design standards that I bought from
Microsoft Press:

Microsoft Windows User Experience: Official Guidelines for User
Interface Developers and Designers. MS Press.

Microsoft(r) Windows(r) User Experience
... official guidelines for creating well-designed, visually and
functionally consistent user interfaces for applications that run on the
Microsoft(r) Windows ... MICROSOFT(r) WINDOWS(r) USER EXPERIENCE is ...

It's certainly not the only book out there on this, but it is very easy
to use and has everything I ever needed as a GUI designer. Why not take
advantage of all those research $$ that Microsoft spent to develop this?

I found it very valuable, although it's not free :-)
