OUR DAILY O'REIILLY I: Abbreviations/Acronyms

DAILY O'REILLY STYLESHEET EXCERPTS BEGINING AS OF NOW:

DAY ONE:
Abbreviations/Acronyms

Acronyms should generally be spelled out the first time, as in: GROSS RENTAL INCOME (GRI). Thereafter only the acronym should be used.

Acronyms should be defined once per unit of publication, i.e. once in a book, once for a website, once for an essay.

Please use either A.M. and P.M. or a.m. and p.m., consistency is cool.
[12:00 am is always midnight, 12:00 pm is always noon. GS]

K = 1024; k = 1000. So a 56 kbps modem is equal to 56,000 bps, while 64K of memory is equal to 65,536.
