Online Writing Style Guides

Another from the writing blog vault (in this one, the links may have changed):

Originally written September 9, 2006 by Leslie Poston

Every writer has had trouble with editing their own work, or just general questions about style. Today’s links are for both free online and paid online versions of the most widely used stylebooks, as well as the print editions. I use the online guides when I travel and don’t remember to bring the book I need, but be sure to buy your own copy, too. Then you can write all over the margins and highlight the things you use the most, like I did.
