Is the word URL capitalized?
URL – all capitals. It's an acronym for Uniform Resource Locator. HTML – when used in text to refer to the markup language, capitalize all the letters. It's an acronym for Hyper Text Markup Language.
You could apply the same reasoning for Web (World Wide Web) as opposed to any "web". Although there is still the debate about Web site vs. "website" ;) If you consider proper noun as referring to "specific people, places, or things", Internet and "the Web" do qualify for their capitalize letter.
- The difference between a website and a web page is that a website is a collection of web pages with information on a subject, and a web page is a smaller part of a larger website usually containing more specific information. If a website were a book, then a webpage would be a chapter in that book.
- A web page or webpage is a document commonly written in HyperText Markup Language (HTML) that is accessible through the Internet or other network using an Internet browser. A web page is accessed by entering a URL address and may contain text, graphics, and hyperlinks to other web pages and files.
- Domain names are used to identify one or more IP addresses. For example, the domain name microsoft.com represents about a dozen IP addresses. Domain names are used in URLs to identify particular Web pages. For example, in the URL http://www.pcwebopedia.com/index.html, the domain name is pcwebopedia.com.
An Internet address is only case sensitive for everything after the domain name. For example, it does not matter if you use uppercase or lowercase with "computerhope.com," it still reaches the same page. However, when typing the name of the page, file, or directory in the URL, it is case sensitive.
- Alternatively referred to as a link, a hyperlink is an icon, graphic, or text in a document that links to another file or object. The World Wide Web is comprised of hyperlinks linking trillions of pages and files to one another. For example, Computer Hope home page is a hyperlink to the main page of Computer Hope.
- But if you want to anchor hyperlinks in text and add more formatting to your message, use Facebook's blogging tool, Notes. Because Facebook Notes supports HTML, you can turn plain text into hyperlinks just like in a Web page. Click "Notes" on the left column on your Facebook home page.
- To make the best use of it, select the text you want to turn into a link, hit Ctrl+K, and then paste the URL you want to link to. Now you have a handy hyperlink in your email without scaring off your recipient with a garbled URL.
An example of a generic drug, one used for diabetes, is metformin. A brand name for metformin is Glucophage. (Brand names are usually capitalized while generic names are not.) A generic drug, one used for hypertension, is metoprolol, whereas a brand name for the same drug is Lopressor.
- In a word, no, schizophrenia is not capitalized. As you know, capitalization is a matter of grammar and academic style. According to APA style, common nouns aren't capitalized; only proper nouns are capitalized (APA p.102).
- Brand (trade) name. Many medicines also have one or more brand names. This is chosen by the company that makes it. Several companies may make the same generic medicine, each with their own brand name.
- No, disease names are not proper nouns, although diseases named after people keep the capitalization of the person's name (Münchausen syndrome). The scientific (Latin) names of disease-causing organisms follow the standard rule of Genus species.
