The Associated Press has seen sense, and is advocating the use of "website" rather than "Web site." The AP construction was increasingly an anachronism that failed to recognize how the concept of a website had entered the language as a thing in and of itself. The two-part, half-capitalized spelling appealed more to sticklers than those intent on rendering language in the cleanest and most natural way possible. At Brafton, we have been writing "website" as our default spelling for several years now, along with those other newsrooms that have done the same. It's positive to see the AP move forward on the matter, announcing the change on Twitter. Now let's see some movement in the direction of "internet" and "email."
