Many questions about spacing.

The structure of Thai sentences

Many questions about spacing.

Postby RanE » Tue Feb 02, 2016 12:33 am

My question is not for a general Thai but for applications and games.
Plz consider it and answer my questions.

1. In game, which measurement unit is the most common?(In Thai)

1) 1 กิโลเมตร
2) 1 กม.
3) 1 km
4) 1km

2. From my research, interrogative sentences are usually used instead of question marks (?).
However, if the space is limited, question marks can be used.
Within an application, is it common to use interrogative sentences and question marks together?

Or use only interrogative sentences or only question marks?
1) Use only interrogative sentences (to keep consistency)
2) Use both
3) Use only question marks (to keep consistency)

3. Date format : are they acceptable in Thai? I know 17 มีนาคม 2559 is the best way but I would like to know the examples below are acceptable.
1) 17/3/2016
2) 17/MAR/2016

4. As I know, there is no space after abbreviation(ดร.มูนีเร๊าะ). However in hour format, I found there is a space after abbreviation like this.(กิจกรรมเริ่มเวลา 23.00 . เป็นต้นไป).
1) Firstly, are the rules correct?
2) if they are, why the spacing rules are different?
