Bases larger than ten 2009-12-14
Nick pose la question :
For numbers in bases larger than ten, what are the digits by mathematicians' conventions?

I assume the first 10 are always 0-9. I know two computer science conventions (for hexadecimal (A-F case-insensitively) and for base 85 (case-sensitivity plus 23 other characters)) and as a school student I learned that base 12 uses either T and E (which confused me when I thought they stood for Eleven and Twelve) or A and B, the latter as capitals only. Clearly, these conventions are in conflict.

I saw your reply in http://mathcentral.uregina.ca/QQ/database/QQ.09.99/magin1.html as accessed a few minutes ago but hope that in the 10 years since then mathematicians have arrived at a convention. Have they?
Thank you.
