13.8 Dates [VI.27.e]

When a date is indicated by the numbers of the month, day, and year (or day, month, and year) separated by a slash, hyphen, or dot, follow print as to the sequence. Use a hyphen in braille to connect the numbers. Only one number sign should precede the entire group. Do not divide between lines.

If roman numerals are used in a date, arabic numerals should be substituted and the month should be brailled first. Example:

5/12/97 or 5-12-97 or 5 12 97 or 12 V 97


If inclusive dates are joined by a hyphen or a dash, the number sign must be repeated before the second date. Example:

Fall Festival 10/2-10/7
