*''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. -- [[User:Huttite|Huttite]] 21:57, 3 Jan 2005 (EST)
Uh-oh. It isn't true that the US uses the Imperial system. Check wikipedia. The clue is the term "Imperial" - it's a UK system. The US standard system is similar, but differs in some important respects. In the UK a pint is 20 fl oz, not 16. So, a pint of beer is going to be bigger than you might expect, and your tank won't hold as many gallons of fuel. You'll get more miles to the gallon, though! [[User:ianeiloart]]
