StylebooksEven though anarchy rages on much of the Web, there still are some rules. If you've come here to escape the menacing Associated Press Stylebook, you'll just find other stylebooks lurking around the corner.
Just as in print, Web publications strive for a consistent look. Sure, different features should be designed for fullest use of the medium, but a visitor should always have a good idea of what site he or she is visiting. To guarantee such consistency, many online publications have their own stylebooks.
So feel free to break the rules. Just do it with style.
