Dave, the Chicago Manual of Style is the grandmama of style guides,
now in its fourteenth edition. Many other style guides incorporate
it by reference. Unless you're in government and must follow the
GPO Style Manual, you should have Chicago on your shelf.

U of Chicago Press also published _Chicago Guide to Preparing
Electronic Manuscripts for Authors and Publishers_. I hope they've
published a new edition since the original came out (1987).

The Chicago Manual is more oriented to publishing--it began as U of
Chicago Press's in-house style guide--but because of its comprehensive
coverage came to be widely used outside of publishing.
