New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I've been given text to typeset for a bibliography and several of the entries end with a web address.
As an example, this is how the URL text has been supplied:
Bringhurst, Robert. The Elements of Typographic Style. Vancouver: Hartley and Marks, 1992, 1997. http://www.TypographicStyle.com/.
Considering the accuracy of this academic publication, is there any reason not to simplify the URL as:
Bringhurst, Robert. The Elements of Typographic Style. Vancouver: Hartley and Marks, 1992, 1997. www.typographicstyle.com
(All lowercase, remove "http://", remove the ending "/", remove the period.)
I also have several situations with text supplied as:
Is it correct to replace the "%20" with a blank character space that it represents, or leave it as "www.typographic%20style.com" ?
