Hi Everybody

I am looking for any articles that are talking about good UI practices; I am working on a research for my employer these days to enhance some of our products' GUI. I am trying to enhance some dialogs, I would appreciate you help very much.

Thanx all

Well I remember from my university days that this type of thing was covered under HCI (Human-Computer Interaction). It covered things like consistency of the design, being forgiving to the user, providing feedback, and so on. I've just tried Google and there are dozens of links on these topics.

Sun has a good set of docs on the topic. You can fine them here.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
