The original poster did not specify that the document would be used mainly
in the US, only that it would conform to American English. (She's in
Australia, so I'm not about to draw any conclusions.) My understanding is
that there is no rule about this in American English. Even so, it would
more practical to use whatever meets the audience needs rather than
conforming to the rule. So, I stand by my original statement.

(I'm not planning a trip to the US anytime soon, thanks.)

Cheers ... Kim
