Yahoo launches style guide for web writing

Yahoo has just launched a style guide for online content, available in parts online, and in full, ironically to some extent, in print. I’m somewhat surprised it hasn’t been done before, given how woefully slow all the standard style guides have adapted to online writing. (The ubiquitous AP Style Guide only recently changed “Web site” to “website,” but still prefers “smart phone.”)

So, let’s take a look at Yahoo’s guide. They have a an FAQ page?

Interested? You should be. Here is where you can buy the book from a variety of vendors. (Surprisingly, it’s actually reasonably priced – just $15 on Amazon – though perhaps because loads of it is already free online.)

Will you buy the print guide, just rely on its online portions, or rebel against it all?
