Wondering aloud if we should provide links to the following resources:

Captioning Key:
Published by the Described and Captioned Media Program, the Captioning Key
provides information about how to present audio content in captions. The
Captioning Key specifies guidelines for the production of captions as well
as subtitles.
http://www.dcmp.org/captioningkey/ 

Suggested Styles and Conventions for Closed Captioning:
The Media Access Group at WGBH has a Captioning FAQ that provides some
conventions for how to caption, though it is geared more for closed
captioning for video and TV.
