    Pledge of Allegiance. Capitalized or not?

    As you typed it: Pledge of Allegiance. It's in the current edition, which I just accessed online.

    Thanks. Apparently this wasn't an issue in the 1992 edition. :D

    (I have a more current book, somewhere in the same room as my sleeping child.)

    You're welcome.

    I have the 2007 edition in print, and I've updated the account online each year. Sadly, I see no reason to renew it when it expires later this year.

    The cover of my '92 edition proudly boasts that it is "Used by more than 1,000,000 journalists." I shudder to think what that number is down to now.

    The online edition is great.
    Not only do they update it regularly and you get e-mails about it, there's also a great Q-and-A with the editor for anything that might come up and he can give you guidance on.

    Yes, I still use it because I've got a part-time side editing job that I've had for a couple of years. Unfortunately, my Rocky account was cut off four days after the paper shut down (same as AP Exchange, which I used a lot). I bought a subscription to the stylebook (can write it off). Can't do the same for AP Exchange.

    I wonder when they changed it to "1 million."

    "Style book" or "stylebook"? :)

    Does the current edition have the phrase, "under God" removed? 8)
