eITHER way, it's e-noyying. But it IS widespread, so when in Rome....

I don't think there's any "legit" rule concerning this usage, other than
maybe "go with whatever looks coolest."

Another variation is a lowercase e, no space, then uppercase next letter.

Examples: eBusiness, ePenguin, eNosehair
