[thelist] Documenting internal company coding standards

Hi all

I work as a developer on a largish company intranet (about 10,000 
documents).  There are four fulltime developers and a bunch of people 
that update content for their department on a need-by basis.

I've dragged (and am continuing to drag) standards into the business and 
banish the tag soup of old, but my colleagues are starting to get 
over-zealous (eg: "no more documents opening in new windows regardless 
of how they're coded EVER").  I need to put a system in place, I guess 
like an internal RFC, or something similar that will allow things such 
as a company standard to, for example, coding popup windows, be easily 
documented and commented on where necessary.

Does anyone out there have any examples of systems they they use or have 
any bright ideas about what would be good?
