If the above is not enough I was just looking at this today,

A excellent site that tells you how to construct barcodes, things like check digits etc. (no code, just the standards/rules)
http://www.barcodeisland.com/symbolgy.phtml

And some fonts you can use to do this

These will also let you do barcode font things in any application that can use fonts ;-)
