When you operate your life through the franchise with the ALL CAPITAL LETTER NAME, you are considered a vessel in commerce.
Don’t believe that?
Well, do a search on the internet for a book called the Government Style Manual put out by the Government Printing Office.
Then search in that book for italicization and what you will find is that any word in all capital letters that is italicized is a ship.
That style manual book is the precise way the government requires the use of the English language in all its documents and procedures. So it is telling you that your name in all capital letters is a ship, or a vessel, and it is floating on the sea of commerce.
The Style manual, first published in 1966 by the Commonwealth Government Printing Office, provides guidance and recommendations for anyone faced with the task of preparing material for publication in either print or electronic format. The subsequent second to fifth editions were published by the Australian Government Publishing Service in 1972, 1978, 1988 and 1994.
Sixth edition 2002
The sixth edition is a substantial revision, in response to the extensive changes in the publishing industry since the previous edition of 1994. It contains detailed advice on publishing in both print and electronic formats; it emphasises the importance of focusing on the audience’s needs when planning, structuring, writing, designing and editing a publication; and reflects a more multicultural and global outlook that recognises the influence of the Internet on publishing.
The procedural steps in publishing form the underlying structure of this new edition. Advice is given on how to plan, undertake and evaluate a publishing project. General practices in editing, design, electronic publishing, indexing and printing fields are also discussed.
It was revised for the Australian Government by a consortium of communications and publishing professionals and is published, marketed and distributed by John Wiley and Sons Australia, Ltd.
The Style manual is a commercial publication and is not available electronically.
