This thread demonstrates a perfect case for standardization in
documentation. The many opinions and statements such as, "I do this,
because..." make those of us who are dedicated to standardization quiver
(shiver? tremble? shrug?).

Until some other more definitive [than MSMS] manual of style comes
along, all you artistes should let go of your creativity and write for
the user (not for your own self-gratification).

Put all that creativity into your novel, article, or shot story. That's
where it belongs.
