I like having the Microsoft Style Guide around as a reference, but by no
means is it a very complete or definitive solution.

One redeeming characteristic, though, is that it finally solved for me that
stupid "mouse"/"mice"/"mouses" dilemma. They recommend using "Mouse Devices"
to express the plural of "Mouse."

For answering questions like that, the guide is probably worth the $25.
