Investing in Taxable Accounts

I'm currently working a second job and am looking to invest the majority of this extra income. I am maxing out my tax-advantage accounts, have a sufficient emergency fund, and would rather invest the money than pay off any of my low interest debt.

What considerations should I think about when investing in a taxable account? What sort of funds tend to be better in taxable accounts?

Thanks for the response LOL. There's a lot of good stuff on the Boglehead forum regarding taxable accounts. I wound up going with Vanguard's FTSE All-World ex-US fund (VFWIX).
