Enough With the Hyphens
As I spellcheck a project proposal this morning, I’m struck by the number of hyphens in our web words that need to go away. Most of us have gone along with “email” and “online” now, instead of “e-mail” and (the worst) “on-line.” But some others exist, and I think it’s time for a revolution.
Ok, it’s a minor point, not a revolution, but can we start calling it “ecommerce” now? Even as I type this, I’m being told by the spellcheck it’s E-commerce, but why bother with the hyphen? And capital “E”? Please. I’m going to ignore that and hope things change.
Do you still say Web site? How about website from now on? Is that still a debate, on how to spell it? Do we need to capitalize “Internet”? Does that really make sense anymore?
Any other words come to mind for you?
