That is interesting and informative-- especially if AP and WD say it. I still think two looks better, but I will try to adapt. (Rats!. I did it again.)
Thank you, that was very helpful. Great sources sited.
The foolproof thing to do is to follow each publisher's submission guidelines using the style guide they prefer you to use.
Thanks. I know Jeff Goins has been preaching just one. I personally like the look of two--but does that date us?
