We adhere to the following two rules with respect to numerals:

1. Write whole numbers from one to nine in words, not numerals, unless the
number expresses a unit of measurement or monetary sum.

2. When the possibility of confusion exists, write the numbers that are most
likely to be confused in text. However, the number in a number group that is
the most complicated or the longest to write out remains a numeral. Example:
"We purchased sixteen, 101 key keyboards, including 254, fifteen-pin connector
blocks."


Regarding bullets, we capitalize the first letter of the first word following
the bullet, even if it isn't a complete sentence.
As a matter of fact, we rarely use bullets with complete sentences as bullets
are generally reserved for highlighting concepts, or
stressing specific points.

This has been one man's opinion, yours may vary with mileage.
