The most detailed style guide and the one regularly followed by book publishers; also widely used for brochures, catalogs, reports, and websites.

When producing materials for use by the news media, follow journalists’ commonly preferred Associated Press style. AP style is a streamlined, fairly informal convention that uses no italics, less capitalization, and fewer commas than some standard styles.

Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary

Not as comprehensive as Webster’s Third New International Dictionary; however, because it is updated more frequently, it contains recent usage changes.
