E-MAIL REQUIRES CORRECT SPELLING, AS DOES ANY FORMAL BUSINESS CORRESPONDENCE

E-MAIL REQUIRES CORRECT SPELLING, AS DOES ANY FORMAL BUSINESS CORRESPONDENCE

You should learn a standard way for spelling words associated with the Internet and e-mail.

  • Internet (always capitalize) or Net

  • Web site (Write in two words, capitalize Web; do not capitalize site)

  • World Wide Web or WWW unless used in a URL, such as www.prenhall.com

  • e-mail We recommend using a hyphen in all e words where the e is for “electronic” to avoid confusion: e-commerce, e-service, e-news, e-zine, e-world, e-billing. The e- is easier to read and recognize as a prefix replacing the word, “electronic.” When the hyphen is eliminated, the reader has to work harder to make the distinction between an e- word and a “regular” e word. A good business writer composes messages that are easy to read.
