Punctuation

As with numbers and abbreviations, rules for punctuation may be less restrictive in tables to save space (see 8.0, Punctuation). For example, slashes may be used to present dates (eg, 04/27/03 for April 27, 2003) and hyphens may be used to present ranges (eg, 60–90 for 60 to 90) (see 19.0, Numbers and Percentages). Phrases and sentences in tables may use end punctuation if required for readability (eg, if cells contain multisentence entries).
