A friend in the Chemistry Dept. sends me this query:

> Here's a comment from a reviewer of a manuscript I submitted for
>publication:
>"Normally, when 'respectively' is used when referring to data, a comma
>precedes it."

Has anyone encountered this rule before? On what principle might it be based?

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

Dale
