Please follow this style, keeping in mind that it is a blend of UK and US English styles:

• Make all quotation marks (single and double) and apostrophes be "smart" (i.e., curly quotes) rather than straight as they are now. Just delete the current one and add a new one, and it should auto-convert.

* American spelling EXCEPT: 'ou' as in colour, labour etc.

* Periods go on the outside of parentheses and quotation marks

• Use numerals for ages and dimensions; spell out below 100 in most other uses

* serial comma YES, use it

* Dates are exactly like this: November 16th 1975

• catalogue

• stonemason

• Edward Junior or Edward Jr.

• Mr. Mrs. Miss

• Hawkhurst Church

• elipsis…like this

• instead of 11' x 25" -- make it 11 feet by 25 inches

• Aunt Amelia / her Uncle John
