Subject:on-line vs. online From:"Susan Self @ignite" <susan -at- ALSYS -dot- COM> Date:Wed, 7 Feb 1996 12:08:19 PST
I had the same question about whether to use "on-line" (as the
FrameMaker spelling checker wanted) or "online". Glancing at
my bookshelf, I saw William Horton's 1990 book _Designing
and Writing Online Documentation_, and I figured if William
Horton, the guru of online documentation, uses "online", the
rest of us can, too.
