I vote for e-mail since email should actually be pronounced "uh-mail" and is 
considered an "abomination" by Bill Walsh, the copy desk editor for the New York 
Times. His book, _Lapsing into a Comma: A Crumudgeon's Guide to the Many Things 
that can go Wrong in Print--and how to avoid Them_, is a fun read for purists or 
people who want an expert's opinion. he has a sense of humor. I keep it nest to 
Strunk & White on my desk.

My two cents, Sara Johns
