This article in The Onion satirizes the clash between styles that divides editors from one another. For fun, think about how the title of the article ups the ante! (O.K., how many of you are reaching for your dictionaries or stylebooks now? Is “stylebook” one word or two? And should I put “The Onion” in quotation marks or italics? I guess that all depends . . .)
