RE: Colon following a number
Is it OK to follow a number with a colon in a title? Example:
PART 3.2: Lakefront Property
Here are a couple thoughts:
1) I could not find this use of a colon in Chicago Manual of Style 15th ed. Which leads me to agree, maybe dropping the colon in favor of a space as you suggest.
2) Do you have a house style manual you are working from? If your company likes the colon to follow numbers on a part division, it should be in the style manual.
This isn't conclusive. Hope this helps a little.
