Numbers used in text are subject to style choices in the same way as words. When editing or proofreading, it’s important to make sure that consistent styles are used that are suited to the material you’re working on. This fact sheet will help you to decide the style treatment for all sorts of numbers, including dates and times, ages, percentages, cross-references and general numbers.

Members can download all of our fact sheets for free direct from the relevant page on our website.
