A silly little question but how would you write out in words a year like “1905”. It’s the “0” of course that’s bugging me.

I would not write it out in words. The number is more concise and clearer to the reader. However, if you have to write it out for some reason, I would spell “0” as “O”.

  1. Puzzled why anyone would write it out except in an obituary or wedding invitation but it’s the year nineteen hundred and five, not “o”, “O”, or “oh”.
