520 |a For more than 50 years, this manual has been recognized as the best style manual for business professionals and students. The basic rules that apply to the most frequent problems are covered as thoroughly as the fine points of the problems that occur less often. The colorful examples and illustrations offer easy-to-follow models to help resolve the difficulties encountered in everyday communications from e-mail messages to formal reports. New features include: up-to-date coverage on dealing with online source material and precautions to observe when citing electronic material; new searchable index: the website accompanying the book allows the reader immediate access to definitions and information on specific topics; updated e-mail rules and expanded plagiarism coverage to meet the needs of changing technology.
