Features, Office A few weeks ago, we talked about how the rise of computing, a field wherein English is the primary language, is affecting smaller languages, and more specifically, the Dutch language (because that's my native tongue). Of course, it's not just the smaller languages that are affected - English, too, experiences the pressure.

Typographic conventions

I don't think newspapers and similar should care at all about what the logo or trademarks use for typographic decoration, but write it in the way that makes it as legible as possible.

iPod => Ipod
IKEA® => Ikea

I mean, what to do when even more companies start using : and _ etc in their product names? Newspapers would have to start using logo images instead of plain text...

...and I prefer OS News.

I agree, also .NET should be spelled out Dot-Net.
