In newspaper names the editors, following the practice of the first edition of the Handbook, have treated city names as adjectives denoting the point of origin, not as part of the title. The result is that the title strictly speaking is italicized and the city name is not: Houston Post, Brownwood Bulletin. In the first edition, if a newspaper had a name without a city in its masthead, it was listed with the city in parentheses: Redlander (San Augustine). But there is no essential difference between this entry form and the form Dallas Morning News, since both declare some independence from the masthead. For the sake of bibliographical simplification, the editors of the New Handbook have tried to be uniform in their practice. When a newspaper was published at several locations, however, the name is given without a city; the Telegraph and Texas Register is a case in point.
