R., are the initials considered three symbol-sequences and therefore a passage? Julie March 19, 2015 at 11:15 am #22673 claurentModerator That's a great question! Three spaced initials are, technically, a passage. However, using the passage indicator and terminator would add extra cells. It would be best to single cap these spaced initials.
