Learn how to use correct punctuation in your application.
Capitalize the first word after a colon, only if what follows is a complete sentence. For example:
I have several favorite foods: apples, bananas, and naan chips.
I have several favorite foods: Apples were my first favorite snack, but naan chips are a rising star in my life.
These quotations are correctly punctuated:
"Would you like a banana?" he asked.
"I hate bananas," she said. "You know I hate bananas."
He paused before saying "bananas are not something people should hate."
Sentences should always be separated by a single space. Never two spaces.
Avoid using the slash symbol (/). Replace it with words or commas as appropriate.
