I'd appreciate some opinions on this!



MSDEsses? (I kid, I kid.)

Or, do I just spell out "Material Safety Data Sheets" every time?

(Before anyone mentions it, I realize that a similar issue came up a few
weeks ago *I think*, but I don't recall whether or not it dealt with
acronyms. Also, for some reason I vaguely remember that someone
pointed to a resource which indicated that the apostrophe method was
appropriate, but in all honesty, it just doesn't look right to me.
Spelling out "Material Safety Data Sheets" fifty times is a last resort,
but I'll do it if it stands the best chance of keeping me sane!)
