7. Common cultural rules of text layout:
– After a sign of punctuation ( but in no case before) there should be a space. This concerns a full point, a comma,a colon, points of ellipsis, a semi-colon, a question mark and a mark of exclamation. A decimal comma in numbers is not separated by a space and is an exception.
– A space is put to the left from a forward quote and an opening bracket and to the right from a backspark and a closing bracket but in no way vice versa.
– An integral part in decimals is separated from a fractional part by a comma but not a point.
– A new paragraph is made by means of paragraph formatting of a word processor ( for example, in the program Microsoft Word « Format >> Paragraph >> First line» or by moving a scroll box on the upper ruler). It is not allowed to make a new paragraph by a space key or by tabbing key.
– Text formatting by multiple pressing of a space key or tabbing key is not allowed.
– A hyphen and a dash should be differentiated. A dash is longer than a hyphen, and the former is framed by spaces; a hyphen does not have a space neither to the left nor to the right.
– Signs «±», «=», «<», «>» should be separated from the text by spaces on both sides.
– References to literary sources should be given in square brackets (not in round brackets or diagonal braces).
– Literals and variables, Latin terms and organisms’ names should be given in italics, for example: t = 2,3 (but not t=2.3); «Investigations in vitro showed…»; «from aerophilous component of facultative normal indestinal flora Escherichia coli and Enterococcus faecium are the most important».
