- Avoid using boldface or all caps for long pieces of text
- In body text, use black text on a white background whenever possible to optimal legibility.
- Always spell check your files.

Should copyright notices be posted on campus websites?
Ownership of copyrighted works created at the University is determined by the 1992 Policy on Copyright Ownership, which "provides copyright ownership to faculty for their scholarly and aesthetic copyrighted works, and provides the University ownership of its employment-related works." (Additional clarification is included on the https://www.copyright.gov/title17/.)
According to the U.S. Copyright Office a copyright notice should contain all of the following three elements:
- the symbol (the letter C in a circle), or the word "Copyright", or the abbreviation "Copr.";
- the year of first publication of the work; and
- the name of the owner of copyright in the work, or an abbreviation by which the name
can be recognized, or a generally known alternative designation of the owner.
