John: The Gregg Reference Manual says to "Capitalize a noun followd by a
number or a letter that indicates sequence. Exceptions: Do not capitalize
the nouns line, note, page, paragraph, size, step, and verse."

I've been following this rule for 20 years now and no one has ever had a
problem with it. I might add, though, that this rule has changed a bit over
the last 20 years.

Hi, people..

My liitle tech-writing brain is going through some major efforts over
the last few days and I'm starting to loose it.

Question: I have some input from a developer that contain, in the
description, the following piece of statement:

"...replace the IBM Magstar 3570 model B with the..."

Under normal circumstances, does the word "model" get capped?
