Through out the interface that I am working on the word trade-in is spelled 8 different ways:
1. trade in
2. trade-in
3. Trade-in
4. Trade in
5. Trade-In
6. Trade In
7. trade-in's
8. trade-ins

I'm am thinking that unless it is part of a registered trademark, the three correct spellings are trade-in, Trade-in, and trade-ins. Does anyone have any information to the contrary?
