Making It Harder To Fail

I ran across this post and I was taken with the idea of making it harder to do bad things.  I especially agree with the color coding of hardcoded values to be ugly and harsh.  Using a larger font is probably an issue of personal taste and programming language choice.

Adopting a coding standard that encourages short, meaningful method names is also good.

Some people really like Hungarian notation, but I've found that using longer variable names is better - you do not need to remember the cryptic abbreviations.
