New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Just wondering what the conventions are for date formatting ie. separators, and text within brackets.
For dates which is the conventional way to format a date?
11/05/04, or 11.05.04. If the former is correct, is the latter acceptable?
For brackets my question is in regard to capital letter usage.
"Please forward the information to me by mail (please tick)."
Should it be (Please tick)? I think the correct way is lower case, but I just want to be sure.
"(One complimentary ticket is included upon entry)".
I think the correct way here is uppercase, again not 100% sure.
If it's how I think it is, you should only use uppercase for text inside brackets when the information within the brackets is a new sentance.
