    Hi, I have a question about page numbers that have letters before the number.  I have attached a copy of the table of contents. Each section abbreviates the letters for the title of that section before the page number.  In this case we have OFF in front of the number.  Since this is not an acronym but an abbreviation, can the OF contraction be used in the page numbering?  Thank You  Cindy

    Hi Cindy,

    Thank you for the image. It was very helpful. UEB does not make a distinction between acronyms and abbreviations when considering contraction usage, only between how they are pronounced. See UEB 10.12.1 and 10.12.2. So we need to decide if OFF would be pronounced as "off" or "O-F-F." Since this is about Office 2013, and "office" uses the OF contraction, I would pronounce it as "off" and use the OF contraction.

    Braille on,
