How do I iron a shirt?

It's about time I grew up and figured out how to iron a shirt properly.
I've always done it, of course, but half-assed jobs, just a quick swipe with the iron to flatten the most vulgar creases, maybe stop the points of the collars from rolling skywards.
But that's not enough any more. I've been watching a lot of Mad Men and by god I demand that my shirts be razor-sharp. I saw an article about ironing in a men's mag a while back, and it was great, complete with clear pictures and idiot-proof instructions.
I've had a dig around online but haven't found anything that suits my purposes. I don't want videos, just a handy step-by-step guide (with art if possible!) on how to get my shirts crisp and crinkle-free. Any general ironing tips would also be greatly appreciated.
