“Website” – now officially one word

I’m reminded of Steve Martin’s line in the 1979 movie The Jerk: “The new phone books are here! The new phone books are here!”

At Goff & Howard today it is: “The new AP Stylebook is here! The new AP Stylebook is here!”

Well, it’s not exactly here yet, but it’s on the way. And, we are excited by the sneak peak provided by a number of media blogs and sources.

Highlights of the new updates:
- website is now one word, no caps
- the Great Recession (referring to the most recent economic downturn) is now official and capped
- e-mail remains hyphenated
- and Web in its short form remains capped

Now begins the tedious job of changing every “Web site” mention on our website, blog, printed materials, press releases, e-mails . . . bear with us, it may take awhile.
