Underline or Italics?

Here's a tip from the Illinois Supreme Court Style Guide: Because underscoring has become the standard way to indicate a hyperlink to another document, it should not be used in lieu of italics.

  • NOT: Duffy v. Orlan Brook Condo. Owners’ Ass’n, 2012 IL App (1st) 113577 ¶36, 981 N.E.2d 1069, 1079 (Ill. App. Ct. 2012).
  • BUT THIS: Duffy v. Orlan Brook Condo. Owners’ Ass’n, 2012 IL App (1st) 113577 ¶36, 981 N.E.2d 1069, 1079 (Ill. App. Ct. 2012).
