Well, have you considered putting it under "D"? For "dot" of course. Phone
books list names that begin with a number as if the number were spelled
out. A 9 would fall right after nincompoops. In our phone book there is
Nine-O-Five Beauty Salon, 905 Boon. There are also a bunch of Fours,
Eights, and Eighties. I didn't look beyond that. OK, I'm sort of joking and
maybe it isn't a good idea, but I thought I would bring it up. People know
how to use phone books and everything is going "dot com" these days and it
wouldn't surprise me if someone tried to look it up that way.
