Subject:Question on Correct way to use Web From:"Nurre, Vickie" <VNurre -at- AEGONUSA -dot- COM> Date:Tue, 10 Nov 1998 13:21:02 -0600
Is Web an acronym? If so, what does it stand for? Should it be all caps,
i.e., WEB? I want to initial cap only, i.e., Web. Someone else I work
with wants to all cap. I looked this up both in the Microsoft style
manual - not referenced, and webopedia which uses it in context of the
World Wide Web. If you use it in a sentence ...on the Web... do you
need to initial cap?
Also, since I'm asking, is it necessary to always initial cap Internet?
