- When a URL ends a sentence, add the necessary period.
- It is preferable to use the shortest version of URL as possible.
- If a Web address won’t fit on one line, try to break the address after a forward slash or before a period.
- Use italic type for URLs.
- It is not necessary to include the http:// or www. at the beginning of URLs or the forward slashes at the end.
- Many Websites now use pre-address subdirectories (sait.usc.edu instead of www.usc.edu/sait). Though www.sait.usc.edu will work, it is never necessary and makes addresses unnecessarily long.
- Internet – always capitalize
- login, logon, logoff; but use as two words in verb form: I log in to my computer
- myUSC – lower case m unless used at the beginning of a sentence
- Web page
- World Wide Web
