Nothing left to believe in

December 7, 2006

I can forgive Oxford University Press Australia for having an ugly, poorly laid-out web site. Building web sites ain’t their bag. What I can’t forgive is poor grammar from the publisher who is supposed to define the English language. From their Site Map:

  • Is Oxfords site secure?
  • What is Oxfords return policy?
  • How do I get my name on Oxfords mailing list or obtain a catalogue?

It’s pretty simple stuff. Oxford is a proper noun. When it posseses things, it has an “‘s” tacked on the end. Oxford’s site. Oxford’s return policy. Oxford’s mailing list.
