In wacky numbering, this is a Level 1 number, which means it’s a roman numeral, and the roman numeral equivalent of the integer 0 is Nulla, not 0.  Therefore, this suggested edit is a no-op, because it would just be the fourth go-round of a series of conflicting changes.

People “agreed” to a lot of things in email, many of them in conflict with each other.

Also, the copyediting process is one of fixing grammar, usage, punctuation, et cetera.  If people “agree” to disregard grammar, usage, punctuation, et cetera, I need explicit direction that there’s consensus in each case.  Else we’re wasting our time copyediting.


Please don’t ask for changes to things you’ve changed, that aren’t in any distributed version.  I’m only looking for actionable changes to version 7.  What you’re observing is a visual change that’s a result of your having changed the typeface and wrapping.  I can’t change it for you.
