It's always a pleasure if I can help a bit. I refered to the Chicago
Manual of Style because I understood you needed an independent and
reliable source to help settle the case with your client. Giving you
the answer I thought was right could not provide necessarily the
"authority" your client asks for. (After all, who am I? And where
does the info come from?). It often gets to the point, where a voice
equals the voice of one other... so there is a need for a third and
"authorized" voice to settle the case. Here comes the Chicago Manual
of Style. It's like a dictionary.
As for mathematical/business/typographic style, simply put,
typography being the ultimate descriptive way of putting written
ideas on paper, it's no surprise the rules of each are converging.
Only, it might get to the point when you're going to need special
spacing, non-breakable spaces, non-breakable hyphens (yes, that
exists) or any other refinement only typography brings to us.
All that said, not forgotting to thank you for your reply. It's appreciated. :)
