How do I choose model train couplers?

I have a bunch of HO model trains and many have broken couplers or have different ones that don't match up. I want to replace all of them so they are all the same. What do I need to do to select the right coupler for my trains? I am not asking about which brand to use, but is there something I need to look for in terms of size, style, etc that will fit all my trains (the trains are all different brands)?

Kadee seems to be the most popular coupler company. They were one of the first to make realistic-looking couplers that would work with a decoupling system. They make them in all scales.
The usual couplers are somewhat larger than true scale, but they now make a series of smaller couplers which really look great. They are more expensive, though.
Kadee also makes all kinds of couplers for different locomotives - different heights, vertically offset couplers, different mounting systems, etc.

You can go to their website and order a catalogue of their products.
