    The graphic in this article hasn’t had the appropriate code around it to make it mobile responsive. This has resulted in the body of the text running off the side of my screen.

    Style question: In “Google has announced a US$1.1 billion investment in smartphone,” do we really need to say “US$”? I recognize that we’re writing for an international audience, but if we’re following AP style and common sense, it wouldn’t be Liberian dollars, right? The context makes it clear.

    I’d suggest that the dollar sign ($) by default means U.S. currency; if it’s something else, we say so, such as 12 million Canadian dollars. (As always, feel free to tell me I’m full of crap.)

      No you’re right – that’s both AP and Wikipedia style, which are the two we’re referring to. It was force of habit on my part accidentally using the style guide I used to adhere to. Cheers
