URL style

I've just inherited an online Help project that repeatedly
refers to "a URL."

This bugs me, because when I first started hearing the
term used, I heard people pronounce it as "earl" -- not
"you are el." So I would've written it as "an URL."

But I'd better check on this. What is the predominant use
these days? What's the proper style? I don't find it in
the Microsoft style manual's index.

I should probably change it to an altogether different
term, such as "Internet address." Does this work for you?
Any other ideas?

Please post to me privately and I'll summarize for the
list. Thanks very much for your help,
