Hello and welcome to Wikipedia.

Your editing of factorial prompts some tips: Notice the difference between these two TeX displays:

The first is standard. Similarly one writes \sin, \lim \max, \inf, \exp, \det, etc., with a preceeding backslash. This prevents them from being italicized as if they were variables and also makes sure a proper amount of space appears between this operator and the variable that follows it. In sup cases, such as \lim, and \int, it allows subscripts to appear directly below the operator, thus:

Although "displayed" TeX like the above looks good, on many browsers TeX embedded in lines of text looks misaligned and ugly. Thus I wrote log n! instead of .

Also, on Wikipedia, words don't customarily get capitalized just because they're in section headings.

You may want to look at Wikipedia:Manual of Style. Michael Hardy 21:48, 2 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of ISO 4343[edit]

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article ISO 4343, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

non notable computer terminology

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

The article World Parts Manufacturer Identifier has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No assertion of notability and sources cannot be found to establish notability, only references to the ISO standard.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
