AP Stylin’ and Profilin’

By Jeremy Cornelius

Italics: AP does not italicize words in news stories. Italics are used in Stylebook entries to highlight examples of correct and incorrect usage.”

[Meaning, do not italicize anything, with the exception of our own newspaper: the Round Table.]

Ex: Claude’s favorite movies are “Mary Poppins” and “Mrs. Doubtfire.”

Times: use figures except for noon and midnight. Use a colon to separate hours from minutes:”

Ex: Claude poops at 10:00 a.m. and pees at 10:00 p.m.
