Yahoo releases web style guide
In a bid to become the authority on web writing and editing – and, presumably, to sell a few books – Yahoo recently launched a web/print/ebook style guide for the web. (They recommend including the exclamation mark when referring to their own company, of course, but I’m resisting.)

The website is a companion to the book, not a substitute (I bought the Kobo ebook version), but what’s up there for free is a good start when it comes to web-specific editorial questions, such as what part of a website gets the most reader attention and how to write strong headlines – as well as a Q&A with the editors and the chance to submit more article ideas. It’s definitely worth a look to get a solid overview of web editorial questions.
