Yahoo has released a style guide, The Yahoo! Style Guide: The Ultimate Sourcebook for Writing, Editing, and
Creating Content for the Digital World
, in direct competition with the AP Styleguide.  It will be in stores (yes, in digital & physical formats) on July 6th.  In reviewing the Yahoo guide, it’s clear that it is more progressive, modern, and mindful of the internet technologies and web terms and their usage, for example website instead of Web site and email instead of e-mail.   I definitely agree with Yahoo more than AP, and I never thought I’d write that sentence!

The website for the book is a great web content resource in itself, including:

“Yahoo Style Guide and Web Content Resources”
