We need to tighten the credit style on my magazine; more stuff is appearing on page.
We're toying w/ using the Blueprint style: If the company name and the URL are the same, drop the company name and keep the URL.
But the all-lower-case style makes URLs hard to read.
I'm SO tempted to change a listing like:
Flower girl's dresses, Morgane Le Fay, morganelefay.com
Flower girl's dresses, MorganeLeFay.com.
How stupid would that be?
I know that most pubs put URLs in all lower-case, because the browser doesn't need them. But it also doesn't CARE, right?
And if the capital letters make comprehension easier, and keep readers from trying to read a broken URL as an actual word, then wouldn't the initial caps be a sensible idea?
Tell me what you think.
