The AP Stylebook, that tome that governs the lives of news writers of all walks, shapes, and sizes, has spoken. It is no longer “Web site” – it is now “website.” Less shift key, less space bar. According to Mashable (link here), the change took place on the AP website yesterday and will show up in the next printed version of the Stylebook. They still print those things? Well, I guess that they were still writing “Web Site” up until yesterday, so there you have it. It’s all good.
