  5. It is maist common tae omit the acute accent in Inglis-leid uisage (Montreal), unless ane is uisin a proper name whaur the context requires the uise o the accent (e.g. Le Journal de Montréal, as compared tae the Montreal Gazette), an tae keep the accent in French-leid uisage (Montréal). This is an aa the approach favoured bi The Canadian Press Style Book (ISBN 0-920009-32-8, at p. 234) an The Globe and Mail Style Book (ISBN 0-7710-5685-0, at p. 249). According to The Canadian Style (ISBN 1-55002-276-8, at pp. 263–4), the official style guide of the Government of Canada, the name of the city is to be written with an accent in all government materials.
