In reply to Graeme Alderson: Hi Graeme,

Our house style is to use the UK grade without a prefix - E7 6c.

For French grades we use - F6c.

And for Font grades we use - Font 6C, although I keep accidentally lapsing in to V grades, as well, they seem easier to understand to me.

The reason for not just using French grades without a prefix is to try and avoid confusion between the UK technical grade and a French grade. Someone as experienced as yourself can tell which is which just from the context of a report, but many people can't.

This I think has been working quite well for us and we have been doing it for several years.

So suck it up! ;-)

Jack


And congrats to Debbie - good effort!
