I'm putting together a style guide for our developers to use for HTML
and CSS. I want it to outline all the best practices I like to follow
when marking up my content. Things like
- don't use tables for non-tabular data
- avoid inline CSS whenever possible
- use labels with each field in a form
- name IDs and classes for their purpose rather than what they look like
(e.g. class="important" instead of class="red")

I thought it might help to find an existing guide and work from there,
but my google-fu is failing me. Can anyone point me to a good guide like
