AP Style - blood alcohol
AP has now clarified an issue that was a bit muddled by an "Ask the Editor" post of a couple of years ago - the form to use for blood alcohol levels.
With blood alcohol figures, it's probably better to now use "percent" (though the entry does drop it in the example in the last sentence). Also notice the leading zero before the decimal and no hyphen in "blood alcohol":
The concentration of alcohol in blood. It is usually measured as mass per volume. For example, 0.02 percent means 0.02 grams of alcohol per 100 grams of an individual's blood. The legal limit for intoxication in most states is 0.08 percent. The jury found he was driving with a blood alcohol level above Florida's 0.08 limit.
Updated Feb. 7 - Warning: AP probably has that measure (graps per grams) incorrect. See the comments below.
A couple of others:
serviceman, servicewoman: But service member.
Post-it: A reminder that it is a trademark for small pieces of paper with an adhesive strip on the back that can be attached to documents.
Also a reminder that "war" is capped when referring to specific wars, including Korea, Vietnam and Iraq.
