A-M and other Nitpicking Netpreneurs;
When I was employed in a more literary field, I used to enjoy the fact
that I was fortunate enough to have learned the King's Lingo before it
became passé. Now, however, for this type of important esoterica,
I rely on my smart, conscientious wife who is a very professional secretary

in legal documents, her take is that : "Web site" is
the proper spelling. Of course, now we must wrestle with the likes
of "cyberspace", "netspeak", "e-commerce", "webweeny", "netpreneur",
"KnowledgeWay", "morino", "etc.", etc.!!

one!!), that perhaps we should file a class action lawsuit against Mr.
Gates for mental distess (before he sues us for misappropriation of "his"
I'm amazed at how much e-traffic (is that spelled right?) is generated
by a single term. Are we REALLY discussing this??! Is it really
IDeal Destinations, Inc.
No need to use neologisms or perverted twists of phrase: it's
without a doubt. Why? "Site" is the noun; "Web" modifies
"site." As with
other such combinations of words, the two have separate identities.
To me there's not even a question...(grin)
