I often write a list after writing "e.g." and I want to follow it by adding a colon to show the start of a list, particularly before a bullet pointed list. How should I punctuate this (assuming it is correct)?
I want to write, "e.g.:" but the ".:" doesn't look right.
When writing this question, I nearly wrote, "How should I write punctuation after e.g.?" - which is another example of the problem.
