The stories reachable from http://www.reutershealth.com/frame2/eline_es.html
are by intention written in es-america. We also have other material,
not yet available online, that is written in es-es. This distinction
is important to our customers: in particular, we do not attempt to
market the es-america material in Spain at present, whereas the es-es
material is potentially saleable everywhere.
News articles rarely, if ever, contain any second-person pronouns, and
generally use formal rather than informal terms for buses and the like:
in our case, autobús.
