This is possibly a difference between cardinal and ordinal systems, or it could be a chronological variation. Like I said, it's a method of writing 21, not the method.


Good enough for me.

Great idea.

I'm writing this after the design has been released.

So I expect that the phi is still the choice that looks the best with the current design. Yah?

I do like the "καpcon idea though. Hmmm....
