Italics, Quotation Marks, or Capitalisation?

Permalink: http://paul.us2uk.eu/?x=entry:entry130601-130058

Today, I was asked to proof-read a document which contained the phrase “rush-to-the-courthouse”. As I’ve just done, the phrase was wrapped in quotation marks though I wondered if, perhaps, it should have been italicised instead, so I went looking for guidance and found this interesting article which does a pretty good job of explaining when to use italics, quotation marks, or capitalisation.

Ching! Ching!

If you found anything on this site of use, interesting, or even mildly amusing please consider tipping a few pennies in the jar to help look after our son, Georgi, to whom this blog is shamelessly dedicated.

Georgi contracted encephalitis and fell into a coma in the summer of 2007. He’s a strong boy and survived, but he suffered brain damage and still can’t walk or talk (well, not very well - but he does try). He’s growing all the time and every penny we collect goes towards his upkeep, and towards his future care requirements.

Thank you.
