Electronic Media Terms and Usage

  • typing URLs


Do not follow URLs with periods or other end punctuation, even when a URL ends a sentence.

Position URLs on a single line when possible. If it is essential to split a URL between two lines, do so after a slash that occurs in the URL; don't add a dash or any other punctuation that is not part of the URL itself.

Do not write "http://" as part of the URL.
