Internet Vocabulary Standards
The library staff will use The Associated Press Stylebook for standardizing Internet-related words. Below is a cheat sheet based on http://www.apstylebook.com/?do=ask_faq.
- email (changed from e-mail), but other e- words are hyphenated: e-commerce
- e-book and e-reader
- website (one word, lowercase w), along with other compounds: webcam, webcast, webmaster
- Web is capped as a short form of World Wide Web, as are Web page, Web feed
- home page is two words
Additional vocabulary can be found in the full print version of the AP Stylebook is available at the Citation Station near the Research Help Desk.
