Q. I am editing an article in which two organizations are named. Each has the word “roundtable” in its name, but one is Round Table and the other is Roundtable. Should I leave the spellings as they are (and risk looking like I have made a mistake) or “nudge” the one into a single word?
A. Alas, copy editors don’t have the authority to change the names of organizations. In this case, as is often true in life, it’s better to look wrong than to be wrong.
