This stylebook is a supplement to The Associated Press Stylebook. It focuses on UNC-Chapel Hill, and it includes entries about the Chapel Hill-Carrboro area and North Carolina.

Italics are used in this stylebook and in The Associated Press Stylebook in giving examples and in using a word as a word. No entry in this stylebook calls for the use of italics in a news story.

If you find an error or have suggestion for an entry, please contact Andy Bechtel, editor of the stylebook.

Margaret Blanchard compiled the first edition of this stylebook, and its existence is a continuing tribute to her. Thanks also go to Bill Cloud, who edited it for many years.
