What’s your style guide?

Andrea, one of our copywriters, just asked me a really good question about the use of style in figures.

She asked me why the letters are next to the number in ‘8pm’ but are further apart in ’48 hours’.

To be honest, I didn’t know how to explain it to her. I just told her it was a house style thing.

Maybe I should read The Economist Style Guide more often.
