News style guide - searchable version

The current style guide for all BBC News output details many of the rules of spelling, punctuation and grammar, as well as issues of accuracy, fairness and impartiality. Attached is a Word document containing a fully searchable A-Z version of the guide (search the Word document using 'Command + F' on a PC or 'Apple + F' on a Mac).

You can search an A-Z of the whole BBC News style guide by using the attached Word document below.

Note that the style guide is updated regularly (so do not save the attached Word document somewhere as it will quickly go out of date).
