10. Technology terms
The terminology related to technology changes almost as quickly as the technology itself. Current practice in spelling and capitalization include:
- email (no hyphen)
- home page
- internet, the net
- web browser
- web page
- the web
Email addresses should include the ‘at' symbol, but no capital letters.
Web addresses that appear in print should not include the prefix "http://". Ensure the URL is properly punctuated.
Do not underline either email or web addresses. In web documents, underlining indicates a hot link.
Try to avoid the situation where a URL breaks at the end of one sentence and continues on another. If it is unavoidable, create the break at a slash within the address.Back to Top
