I dunno Bob, as I say the fact that there is no standard way (all these years
after the fact) of writing 'web language' is a bit strange actually. You would
think that there would have been a settled format for all of these things. So
when everyone has a different way of using these terms the only person who will
decide what is right for each site is going to be the person paying for it.
Although it's essentially trivial, maybe the workers of the web should be
driving standard terminology.

According to wikipedia it is 'website', 'e-mail' and 'login' by the way.
