Re: Librivox contributions and dates/numbers
In my opinion, it is better if '1800 becomes "eighteen hundred" for example'. If you have a pronunciation dictionary with an entry "1800" you would need two corresponding pronunciations: "eighteen hundred" and "one thousand eight hundred". So in the end, "eighteen hundred" is less complicated.
I don't think that there is something like an "industry standard". You can handle it both ways. There is no right or wrong.
