    Linda,

    I have been working with the practice text/audio files we downloaded (Dr. Preston, Gill depositions, etc.).

    In the Gill key, I notice that you wrote “UK” without periods, but “U.S.” with periods. “Bad Grammar/Good Punctuation” does say that “U.S.” should include periods, but I could find no reference specifically mentioning “UK.” Morton’s is uncharacteristically silent on the subject. And the internet is — as usual — all over the place!

    Is the rule that “U.S.” is written with periods, and “UK” without? If so, is that not a glaring inconsistency?

    Thanks,
    Brian

      I find most reporters are not putting the periods after US, RN, MD, etc. On US, it just doesn’t look right to me, so I put in the periods. It was an oversight not to do it on UK too. I would do that, too, for consistency. Good catch!

    Any suggestions on how to work with your macros when they don’t function properly? Mine seem to be mixed up, for example when I try to use my number with commas macro, it converts it to $ instead.
