Short form of World Wide Web. Always capitalize. Do not italicize Web addresses within blocks of text. Do not capitalize a Web address unless the address is case-sensitive. The address should appear exactly as is in the URL. Do not break a Web address in a line; if it is unavoidable, break after a slash or period without using an end-of-line hyphen.
Names of Web publications or common sites (such as Salon or Google) should not be italicized. These should include ".com" on first reference, but can stand alone on subsequent references.
URLs should not be italicized or underlined in printed materials (unless body of text is already italicized); Microsoft Word will autoformat as an underlined hyperlink, which is acceptable only in informal pieces.
