I have tried to research this .. could anyone answer why figures 1-9 are written as digits/numbers and then from 9 onwards they are typed in alphabetical form?

    Please don't write in block capitals. It's considered "loud" by some, and "rude" by others.

    When to use numerals and when to spell out the name of a number is a matter of style; there is no single convention. Actually, the more common guideline that style guides give is the opposite— to spell out one through nine or even one through ninety-nine, and use numerals for 10 or 100 or greater.

  • Apologies to you once more Mari-Lou A I don't know that was rude .. I have always, previously, made the subject in block capitals to make it stand out more.. I NEVER know it was considered rude. I have learnt.
