Writing for the web

I like the idea of style guides, maybe it’s because I’m a secret list maker – but knowing the correct way to refer to pensioners is something i think we should all have easy access to.

My usual preference is for the Guardian style guide, probably because I’m a pinko liberal – but also because it’s free online, and I can’t bring myself to pay £11 for a book I really know I will never use.

Well now Yahoo! have a style guide – and it’s all about writing for the web – yes it has the list of words 🙂 but it also has some actually quite helpful stuff about how to make web copy readable… you can even buy it as a actual book maybe I should stop this ramble and go read it.
