The Chicago Manual of Style FAQ

Wondering where to break a URL at the end of line, whether the ban on splitting infinitives still stands, or how many spaces to put after a period? The answers are here. While certainly not a comprehensive guide and not organized in a particularly helpful way, The Chicago Manual of Style (CMS) FAQ nonetheless answers some of the questions that commonly vex writers and editors. What's more, the page is a fun read, considerably lighter and wittier than the venerable CMS at spots. If you don't find what you're looking for here, CMS provides an email address for you to write and ask directly. Just be sure not to call the editors "sirs," or you will surely be corrected.
