Yeah, that's the thing - it's fun and cute if you don't take it seriously, but so many people do. I'm more likely to hit up Grammar Girl for advice.

My favourite thing about it is that White also wrote Charlotte's Web, which I adore, and I think he broke every single rule in Elements while doing so :)

And Trumpet of the Swan, my personal favorite. "Where will we go, ko-ho, ko-ho" probably isn't strictly in line with grammatical rules either.

I love Charlotte's Web so much. I've been reading it to the girl at night, and it's so heartbreaking and lovely.
Charlotte's Web is wonderful. (How it lost the Newbery is beyond me.)

When I started working as a magazine editor in the 80s, everyone in the office was required to have a copy on their book shelf (I think I still have my copy.) Working as part of an editorial staff, we needed some sort of referee if we couldn't agree. :) However, I agree it contains nuggets, not volumes, of wisdom.
