The survey says: * web site or website --> website * site map or sitemap --> sitemap * E-Mail or E-mail or e-mail or email --> e-mail * Internet or internet --> either apparently accepted * Web site? --> I will stay with website, not to confuse things, and accept the changing order to lower-casing * Login or Log in --> use login as the noun and log in as the verb form (this was a good reminder, case probably relevant to current usage) * loggingin or logging in? --> the jury will be out indefinitely, I am not touching this... About capitalization, I always capitalize Mother, my Mother - I feel that there is more than simply proper noun as the issue, it is respect. However with Internet or Web site or E-Mail, I don't feel that same need. Am I going to offend the internet by referring to it in lower-case? Grammar snob? - Living the life of a perfectionist has its drawbacks. It's easy to accept poor grammar in any language when it's not the person's regular tongue (and the person is making an Effort), but when the person is capable and chooses to get sloppy or lazy that's when it becomes a challenge. -- Bob Meetin www.dottedi.biz 303-926-0167 Hook up with me on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Plaxo Pulse and Bebo or catch my blog at www.dottedi.biz/blog.php Standards - you gotta love em - there are so many to choose from!
