→Digits or Words?: sig
:One thing that prompted me to make this an issue was [[User:184.108.40.206|an anonymous user]] made [http://wikitravel.org/en/index.php?title=Special:Contributions&target=220.127.116.11 edits] to [[Altiplano (Bolivia)]] that changed numbers into words. There are some arcane gramatical or style rules that suggest that numbers be written as words in text. One style guide I have suggests:
*''Use words, not figures at the beginning of a sentence and for numbers one to nine. Otherwise figures should be used for numbers greater than nine, and '''they must always be used before a symbol'''.''
:I take this to mean that measurements should always be expressed as numbers, since the measurement unit is able to be expressed as a symbol.
