    Re: days of the week

    In the UK the following are generally accepted abbreviations:

    Sat
    Sun
    Mon
    Tue
    Wed
    Thurs/Thur/Thu (I think but now I am confusing myself)
    Fri

    Except for Thursday all others are definitely accurate.

    Thurs. is the accepted norm, but the other forms are creeping in.
