TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I think that it is because it is better to see words in written
rather than numbers, but most numbers above ten require too many words
words that are too long to be practical. Eleven and twelve are not that
bad, but the rule may seem inconsistent if they were spelled out when
numbers above ten are not.
IMHO, it's only after you get above twenty that the written-out words
start getting clunky. Maybe it would make more sense for the rule to be
that all numbers up to and including twenty should be written out.
