Several months ago, I posted the same question to the DC Web Grrls 
discussion list. The general consensus from that list agreed with my personal choice,
favoring the term: "Web site."

I can't find too much consistency, myself. Everyone seems to have their own 
in-house styles for this and other Net-related terms (e-mail/email, 
online/on-line, url/URL, etc.). Our house style is "Web site," largely for 
two reasons:

1. since everyone capitalizes World Wide Web, it seems to make sense that 
Web alone be capitalized.
2. "Website" is an O'Reilly trademark name for one of their products. I'm 
not sure how popular or prominent that product is these days.

This may seem like a small thing, but in my recent quest to bring
consistency to a site I am developing I realized that I have seen
Website(?) in every one of the above spellings - often on the same
sites.  I'd apprciate some professional guidance from the group.  What's
the official word for a Web site?
