Associated Press Style: No more capitalizing internet and web
April 4, 2016 - Uncategorized
On Saturday, the Associated Press announced that in the 2016 edition of their widely-used AP Stylebook guide to English grammar and usage, the words “internet” and “web” will no longer be capitalized.
“The changes reflect a growing trend toward lowercasing both words, which have become generic terms,” AP Standards Editor Thomas Kent told Poynter.
Please note that Boing Boing will continue to capitalize Information Superhighway.
