I updated this to match the SJGames standard naming convention for worlds: http://www.sjgames.com/general/guidelines/authors/traveller.html

Where the subsector and sector names are clear from context, simply naming the world will do. Where the sector is known, the preferred method is [World]/[Subsector]. Thus: Narval/Cronor, Nirton/District 268, Aramis/Aramis (all of these are in the Spinward Marches -- the latter one of many examples of the world and subsector having the same name). An alternate method of naming a world is to give the position number within the sector (each hex on a sector grid is numbered) in the format [World] ([Sector] ####). The sector name can be omitted if it is clear from context -- e.g. Jewell (Spinward Marches 1106) or Jewell 1106.
For a formal reference, all will be used: Aramis/Aramis (Spinward Marches 3110)

I suggest if we ever start a style guide page, the SJGames page should be strongly considered. Tjoneslo 22:06, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
