Which is correct: email or e-mail? How do you abbreviate Unitarian Universalist? If you're creating UUA.org web pages, you'll probably run into questions like these. Editorial guides provide a set of standards to use when you're not sure how a word, term, or name should be spelled, punctuated, or referred to. These documents provide consistency so your readers won't be distracted from your message by variations in style.
A house guide defines styles and practices unique to the publisher, company, or office generating the publication, and determines consistent choices where multiple styles are correct. If a standard is not defined in our house styles, then we defer to the standards outlined in the Chicago Manual of Style, Fifteenth Edition, and Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary.
In creating and maintaining this style guide, the Unitarian Universalist Association's (UUA's) Web Team continually strives for accuracy and completeness. Because the Unitarian Universalist Association is in a state of constant growth and change, however, this style guide remains a work in progress. We welcome your feedback.
