A note to readers about style changes in ‘The Gazette’

Goodbye Web site, hello website. This month, the Associated Press released the 10th edition of its stylebook—the longtime standard-bearer for journalists and other writers—and with this issue, The Gazette will follow the new guidelines for social media and adopt other changes contained in the reference book.

Among those that might be noticeable to readers are some city designations. A number of foreign cities that previously stood alone are now identified by country.

Not changed (though many writers had rallied for updating): e-mail, work force and under way.
