Error messaging best practices

I'm looking for info on best practices / guidelines for error messaging
(for forms on the web)- both the content of the message and the way
errors are brought to the user's attention.

Does anyone know of any good sources? Or maybe just a site that has an
interesting solution?

Thanks,

Hi All,

Any recommendations for an open source wireframe tool? Something that is
