Excellent!

Wherein this is a very good idea


The Chicago Manual of Style. You either know it and hate it, or you've never had to deal with it. For lovers of words and anyone who ever had to deal with a style guide, I recommend the Chicago Manual of Style Q&A. The editors answer questions with a sense of humor that I've found most users of their book are lacking.

I've also found that the online search feature is the easiest way to use the CMS. So I'm very happy that they're putting the whole thing online!
The Chicago Manual of Style Online is coming soon! Scheduled for release in September 2006, the Chicago Manual of Style Online offers the fully searchable text of the 15th edition in an affordable, subscription-based resource. At an introductory price of $25 for one year (regularly $30), the Chicago Manual of Style Online brings to the computer desktop all the tools that writers, editors, and publishers need. If you are a registered member of the Chicago Manual of Style Web site, you will be among the first to know about the official release of the new Chicago Manual of Style Online. If you have not yet registered, please go to our members page to sign up now for e-mail announcements about changes to the Chicago Manual of Style Web site and the release of the online edition. The CD-ROM edition of the Chicago Manual of Style will also be available in September 2006. For more information, go to www.chicagomanualofstyle.org.

I posted a bit more Disney/Orlando stuff. That probably exhausts my knowledge.
