Title: Chicago Manual of Style/MLA Style question
Post by: JodyJS on April 17, 2013, 12:50 PM
Ack! I can't find this online.

Do you add a period after in or cm in text?

Thanks!

NOT my area of expertise, but it seems like the CMS expects a period: "There is no space in such expressions as the following (for 6 ft. 1in.): 6'1"" (10.69, p. 526)

It isn't perfect, but they use periods in their example.
