Do any of you know where I can get a list of how to write or abbreviate
things like the word 'million?'


A simple Google on "abbreviation for million" called up 106 (ten to the
sixth power). Casting back lo those many years to high school chemistry,
that's the standard scientific notation. It doesn't work well in text
format, though.

I also signed up for the 30-day free trial of the Chicago Manual of Style
online and looked in its abbreviations section. Did not find anything for
"million". Now I'm curious.
