About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Press, Editors of EEI

From the Back Cover:

If you write or edit publications that ever mention computers, new media, or the Internet, "E-What?" can help you make sure that style and usage issues don't get in the way of your readers.

Traditional style guides simply can't keep track of newly coined Web-related terms. And computer dictionaries aren't helpful for making consistent editorial decisions about questions like: Is it "media is" or "media are"? "an URL" or "a URL"? "Web site" or "website"?

Consistency is your goal -- but IT keeps changing.

Whether you are a content creator actively involved in IT (information technology) or you write and edit publications for or about new media, you need up-to-the minute information about styling rules and workarounds for your next encounter with mid-capped trade names and verbed nouns. "E-What?" explains how to:

* Keep punctuation, capitalization, and compounding consistent

* Format Internet addresses and bibliographic citations

* Finesse abbreviations, odd trade names, and troublesome IT terms

* Write for a Web audience that may be international

* Pick your style battles (many "rules" are a matter of preference)

* Conserve the rules of English usage that still apply

* Create your own style guide -- and ensure that it gets used

* Enhance the readability of online content
