Usage notes

As this abbreviation only eliminates the use of two characters, the full word, Fort, is generally preferred. It is also never appropriate to use this abbreviation in body text in any form. The same applies to Mt for Mount, So for South, and No for North. Use of Ft is only appropriate when space necessitates.
