DHS posts a website style guide

Filed under: DHS News — by Christian Beckner on February 12, 2006

DHS has posted a style guide for the dhs.gov website at the links below. One interesting note:

Always spell out Department of Homeland Security; do not use DHS. The only exceptions are when someone is being quoted and they refer to “DHS.”

DHS can come up with all the style sheets they want, but their failure to use the Web to provide real-time, actionable information during an emergency verges on negligence
