Hi all,

This is for an in-house marketing style guide.

Which is "more" correct: kHz or KHz? My preference is kHz. The MS Style
Guide (copyright 1995, not the latest 3rd edition) contradicts itself. Sun's
Read Me First! says kHz in its list of abbreviations (why is that such a
long word? <g>).

Let the opinions roll!

FYI; Did a search on buses vs. busses last week. Several online dictionaries
gave the impression that both were quite correct. Then I did a Deja News
search on both occurrences. The result? Busses had about 4500 hits, while
buses had 140,000 hits. Buses won.
