This is the Styletips project, which provides useful advice to editors on writing style and formatting in bite-size chunks from the Manual of Style and related pages. For the complete schedule of Styletips, see below.

Please place suggestions on the Talk page. The objective is to keep the focus of each tip narrow and to express it simply and briefly.

Ampersand


The ampersand (&) substitutes for the word and. In normal text, and should be used instead: January 1 and 2, not January 1 & 2. Retain ampersands in titles of works or organizations, such as The Tom & Jerry Show or AT&T. Ampersands may be used with consistency and discretion in tables, infoboxes, and similar contexts where space is limited.
