I am confused about the numbers on the axis lines of a line graph. The graph I have has both negative and positive numbers (with plus signs). The code being used is Nemeth.

According to 6.6.4.1, number signs are supposed to be used on graphs. I got that. Then 6.6.2.3 says that the first digit of the number should be aligned with the grid line and if there is a minus sign, it should be to the left of the grid line.

The first problem I have is that 6.6.4.1 says to use number signs without any exceptions. However, Nemeth rules do not allow number signs to be used in conjunction with plus signs. I am assuming that positive numbers would still not get the number signs as directed in Nemeth rules. Is that correct?

If the number signs for positive numbers are omitted, would dots 123 of the plus sign be aligned with the grid lines or should the plus sign be to the left of the grid line just like the negative sign?

Thank you for your time.
