Thank you for your recent update on the AP Stylebook (Opinion, April 29). I was struck with a bit of deja vu at your use of the word "bible." In the fourth grade at venerable Riverside Grade School (just south of Albany) I recall student after student failing to spell that word correctly. The teacher eventually called a halt and reminded the class that the word was always spelled with a capital B: Bible. My, how times change.

And thanks to the AP for ending the visually obscene practice of using semicolons to separate bulleted items.

(Editor's note: According to AP style, when referring to the Scriptures in the Old Testament or New Testament, the B is capitalized. It is lowercase when using bible as a non-religious term, such as, "My dictionary is my bible.")
