GUI stands for Graphical user interface. GUI guidelines are "a set of
statements defiing the 'look and feel' of an organization's software."
Basically, the guidelines serve as a recommendation relating to computer
applications (e.g., how to most efficiently design navigation routes for
programs, how to use title bars, use of fonts, how long audio or visual
feedback should take). A practical example: I consulted the guidelines
when testing applications that our programmers coded to make sure the menu
options (windows-based) were being labeled correctly.

Several people have used the term "GUI" recently. Could *one person* please
post a definition? Thanks.
