A stylebook to rule them all

The Associated Press released its 2010 edition of the Stylebook this week.

Among the changes Web site becomes website, but the Web remains capitalized as a proper noun.

Back in the day it was always a funny day when the new Stylebook came out. I would spend a hour a so updating my brand new book with all of the notations in the old book. Included in the transfer were items jotted in the margins, sticky notes and clippings of all sorts of things that a copy editor is expected to know.

Now, of course, it’s also online and the spiral bound “Bible” is probably a distant second or third choice for many journalists.

BTW — I remember the days before the Stylebook was spiral bound and when they were brown!
