Dear List:

I saw a recent post about on-line vs. online. I've always used online, but
recently have been called on it (it's presented in Websters as on-line).
It makes me question whether the way I've been spelling these types of
words correctly. May I share a few of the words in question and ask your
opinions? If anyone knows of a document that lists the correct spelling
method, I'd like to see it.

on-line vs online and off-line vs offline
sub-system vs subsystem
pull-down menu vs pulldown menu
