After all, that is the convention we used as NeXTWORLD Expo
volunteers in 1993, working in the NW office with D. Lavin. :-)
The database of those volunteers for NW 93 used that convention, as
did the BANG database (for as long as it survived...)

I don't claim the windows dialer is right; I just request that,
for my personal convenience, you change the way you write
phone numbers. I suggest the international convention[1,2]
