For context, the reason I went hunting is this sentence:

"[Company] ... providing support services in ... network engineering
and infrastructure support, help desk/call center operations,
information assurance, program management, and application software,
Web, and portal development"

I like it better as 'web' in that sentence.


I like the sentence better as:

"[Company] ... providing support services in ...

- network engineering
- infrastructure support
- help desk/call center operations
- information assurance
- program management
- application software
- website development
- Internet portal development"

I'd carefully question my SMEs re: interpretation of the final two items
(the original was a little fuzzy). However, I would absolutely hold my
ground on the convention that any list containing more than four items
should be bulleted for clarity. Note that "website" is not capitalized but
"Internet" is -- common versus proper noun. Once an English major always an
English major.

Blame Strunk & White, not me.
