When you have a form with fields and captions for these fields, should you do it like that:
Field1: [ ]
Field2: [ ]
or like that:
Field1 [ ]
Field2 [ ]
I saw both used in popular application. Microsoft generally uses colons (My computer properties -> Computer Name tab is one example). Opera browser doesn't use colons as separators on forms (example: Preferences form).
I personally don't have a strong opinion on which one is better. But I'm working on this "1000s of winforms" app where I suspect we have forms with and without colons so I would really like to set a standard and go one way or another on all forms because the inconsistency is far worse than any of the options.
