1) We don't have a style guide. If we did, I'd write it, as I'm it for
writing. But naturally I'm too busy :-/

2) I am writing a proposal - and let's say the org we are writing for
doesn't have a styleguide either (I'm looking; I think they do
actually) or that it doesn't address this particular (which I don't
think it will).

3) I prefer 'workgroup' to 'work group' BUT the organization we are
writing for has 'work group' in its title. So what I'm wondering is if
it's OK (or a good idea) to use 'work group' when referring to the
organization and 'workgroup' when referring to the concept of
workgroups or of sub-groups within the org?

4) Does that question (above) make sense?

5) Thanks!

6) FRIDAY!!!!
