Advice on Grid for Visual Studio Developers?

Is anyone aware of a developer's reference on defining a layout grid
(or the atomic unit thereof) in Visual Studio? I've tried searching,
but am perhaps not using the right search terms.

I mentioned the need for all our UIs to be designed according to a
grid, and got some "deer in the headlights." And when I used 960
site as a means to convey my point, they got it... but responded with
"that's CSS - for web development.

Website homepage? How do you fulfill your mission of distinguishing
your product suite when some of your products are similar?

To add more context, imagine you know that many of your customers

two documents, which I hated. But Visio can't handle tables well, in
terms of wrapping the text, tabbing through them, etc.

Basic time tracking and invoicing for a solo consultant

I'm neck-deep in looking at various options for doing basic time tracking
and invoicing just for me, not a whole agency. I've wasted a ton of time on
this and figured I'd tap the collective wisdom here.
Up until about a year ago I used a pretty simple timer on my Treo and an
Excel spreadsheet for the invoices.
