Hyperlinks and Acronyms

Microsoft Word always makes e-mail addresses and websites as hyperlinks. Is it only appropriate to have e-mail addresses and websites as a hyperlinks on more web-based texts? (Is the business letter for Midterm 2 meant to be sent on paper or through e-mail?)

Also, is it appropriate to use acronyms, such as MS, when the acronyms are commonly used in society? Or should we state what the acronym stands for?

The business letter is meant to be sent via e-mail, so the inclusion of links is OK. However, for the purposes of the test, please remove the underscore from the e-mail link.

Abbreviations like MS are acceptable. In this case, as you suggest, the recipients of the letter will know what it means.
