on the alphabetic/numeric number thing, according to my sources;
"In AP format, numbers between one and ten are written out alphabetically ("nine" as opposed to
"9"), but typically numbers of 11 or higher are written in numeric form"
In MLA format, any number that can be written in two words is written out alphabetically, for
instance, "twenty-one." Any number that cannot be written in two words should be typed in
numeric form, for instance, "731" or "3.14159."
There are some important exceptions:
(1) Always use numerical form for addresses, statistics, percentages or decimals, page numbers, and the
numbers in addresses.
(2) Always use alphabetical form for numbers beginning sentences. (Avoid using a statistical number as the
first word of a sentence if you can help it.)
just so everybody knows.
