For assistance with spelling proper names of prominent individuals, corporations, or trademarks, the web can be a valuable resource. Always be careful, however, when consulting web sources and choose sites most likely to provide reliably accurate and authoritative information. For example, when seeking proper spelling and usage of names of Microsoft products, the Microsoft website is the most reliable resource.
