Coding Standards

Is there a doc similar to Sun's Java coding standards for .NET - I'm interested in curly braces, whitespace, variable naming and all that sort of stuff but can't find it anywhere on the Microsoft site or in google.

Tom, I share your pain.  The MSDN site hosts the webs worst search engine.  Here is the document I think you were looking for:

NET Framework General Reference 
Design Guidelines for Class Library Developers

Hmmm ... not the most user friendly section but it is part of what I want.  Thanks very much.
