comment Proper punctuation in abbreviation of Nota Bene
I disagree with the close vote; Internet reference sources generally disagree here. Wikipedia says "often abbreviated as N.B.", thefreedictionary.com says "Abbr. NB", wiktionary says "abbreviated form n.b.", CMOS gives "NB, n.b." - none give special emphasis nor assert exclusivity in their correctness.

@Alenanno I personally tend toward NB: but I don't know of any legitimate style guides that condone this usage, which is what led me to ask the question.
