A reminder, which I think is in the guide but I keep finding it anyway... it's not a +1 Longsword, it's a Longsword +1. Personal pet peeve perhaps, but that's how it was done "back in the day."

Actually it's not, I'll make a note to add it. I also didn't have anything in that section to bold and capitalize treasure items, I'll update that as well.

What is the preferred style wanted for measurements (feet) vs (')?

The words "feet" and "inches" are always preferred over the marks ' and "; those who live in areas that are properly metric may not be familiar with these largely American marks, and they are also sometimes hard to see in print. The ' is used for movement, as it is traditional and not generally subject to misunderstanding, but I'd prefer to see the actual words used for ranges, areas, etc.
