Reduce the indicators within equations. When reading mathematical expressions, passage indicators are less intrusive than interior indicators.
Refer to: Guidelines for Technical Material, Part 1.7.
Numeric indicators set numeric mode for the remainder of the
Avoid division of a number between lines unless considerable space is
saved. If division is necessary use the appropriate line continuation
indicator and observe the following rules.
When it is necessary to break a long number across lines, place the
break in a logical place--at a numeric space, or after a comma which
is being used as a separator--not between two digits.
When the division occurs after a separating comma, or between two
digits in a number which comprises a large string of digits with no
separators, use the one-cell line continuation indicator " at the end
of the line.
When the division takes place at a numeric space, use the two-cell
line continuation indicator "" at the end of the line.
Since the line continuation indicators do not terminate numeric mode
a numeric indicator is not required in the next line.
The following symbols may occur in numeric mode:
Refer to: Section 11.3, Technical Material, for the definition of a
simple fraction and the use of general fraction indicators.
A space or any symbol not listed in 6.2.1 terminates numeric mode.
When a full stop (period) is followed by a number, it precedes the
numeric prefix # unless it is clear that it is a decimal point.
