The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
"The transition from World Wide Web site to Web site to website seems to
have progressed as rapidly as the technology itself. The development of
website as a single uncapitalized word mirrors the development of other
technological expressions which have tended to evolve into unhyphenated
forms as they become more familiar. Thus email has recently been gaining
ground over the forms E-mail and e-mail, especially in texts that are more
technologically oriented. Similarly, there has been an increasing preference
for closed forms like homepage, online, and printout. "
Conclusion: "website" won't look odd today and everything else will probably
look odd five years from now (or maybe two years from now).
