Tuesday Tip: OK or okay?

Which should you use? OK? Okay? ok?  

Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary lists OK as the standard spelling and okay as a "variant." Most book publishers, however, prefer okay. If you're self-publishing, readers are likely to be fine with whichever one you choose. If you're working with a publisher, be sure to check on their preference. It may even be covered in the house style guide.
