Editor's Notes

  • What are these numbers? It is hard to tell. There is no formatting, punctuation or spacing to help us determine if these are simply large numbers or some else.
  • But when we add formatting, it is much easier: The first is a US phone number, the second is an ISBN. If you know the rules of formatting, you know a lot about what is going on here. The formatting is a way of sharing information quickly and easily with other folks.
