1) Be consistent. 2) Write out the name of the element "Al" to determine which spelling system to use.

Thanks, but please clarify (2). I'm not sure what you mean...

I just checked them, and they are working just fine. Thank you for asking.
That had crossed my mind, I admit. As so often, I can't remember specific examples when it comes to the crunch; but I did think he went very heavy on the metric system, and that didn't seem natural.
No dount you (Mike or Daniel) can tell us all a shorter word thathas the same meaning... If not, I'll happily continue to make good useof the word "avail".

"...the article in question is a self-published thing that I avail to my clients ..." does not constitute "good use" of the word "avail". And why do you want it shorter?
But, since you do ask for a shorter synonym, COD suggests "help". Now do you agree with me? I might say "offer my clients". (Sorry if this comes out blue: it's a pasting-from-Quotefix thing.)

Mike.
So that I'd waste lots of your time.

That's OK then: we're good at that round here.

It's silly talking about how many years we will have to spend in the jungles of Vietnam when we could pave the whole country and put parking stripes on it and still be home by Christmas. Ronald Reagan, October 10, 1965
No doubt, but the article in question is a self-published thing

that I

avail to my clients via the web and in hard-copy form.

(Every bugger on the planet will notice that idiosyncratic nay, eccentric use of "avail", though.)

My understand of "avail" is that it is what the client will do with the article. If I make an item available someone else is then able to avail of it.

The way I used the word is quite commonplace, as you must be aware. Whether that usage is listed in any dictionary or not, I don't know. I can't be bothered to look!
