Big News From AP

The respected AP Stylebook announced (via Twitter) that “Web site” should now be written as “website.”  This would cause newspaper copy editors great excitement, if there were any newspaper copy editors anymore.

 Hat-Tip: Mashable. Yes, we know about the American Copy Editors Society (ACES).
