Don't know of any Web sites; try Google for usage sites.

My *Wired Style Principlse of English Usage in the Digital Age* (ancient, as it
was published in 1996) lists email and emoney, but not ebusiness. However,
e-zine is still listed with a hyphen. Unless confronted by a better-armed gang
of thugs insisting otherwise, I use all lower-case, unhyphenated. Everyone seems
to know what I emean.
