This is a personal project page for organizing and tracking potential pages to serve as style guide models, both for general format and for specific tricky situations. If you have suggestions, I ask that you please make them on the talk page rather than editing the content on this page. --EncycloPetey 02:32, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
