  • I found the Editorial style part of the document very interesting and believe this can have a significant impact on users, especially the voice aspect.

    Is there any more Microsoft literature available on Editorial style in general?

  • Nice I'm about to dive into them.

  • Let's just hope that everyone plays by the rules and actually follows the guidelines.

  • Hi,

    I am a SE developer and I am looking out for BING ADWORDS API from where I can post ads/adgroups/campaigns.

    I know about MSN API, Please let me know if the same API is used for Bing to Publish ads or there is any separate API. If it is a separate API for Bing, could you also help me with the Documentation?

  • Thank you for the update.

  • Well, Thanks Kristin for this information. Visual Guidelines is very helpful for everyone.

    Thanks.
