As with numbers and abbreviations, rules for punctuation may be less restrictive in tables to save space (see , 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 , Numbers and Percentages). Phrases and sentences in tables may use end punctuation if required for readability (eg, if cells contain multisentence entries).
