"A Historic" vs "An Historic"Edit

We've (for arcane reasons) chosen to use "an historic" here on MA rather than "a historic" (at least partly because in Trek canon, they word it as "an historic"), despite it being of questionable American vs UK grammar styling. Just to let you know. -- sulfur 15:34, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for letting me know about the style preference; I checked the style guide and other relevant pages for this before I edited and found nothing. I should note that it's inconsistent on the site; I found both instances in plenty in the database so I also assumed it was not a hard rule. If I am mistaken and there is in fact a style guide section on this very grammatical subject please direct me to it, if there is not, it would be nice to have one. - Lampbane 15:55, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

It's one of those things that should be in a style guide, but like many other things... isn't yet. Around the site, it should not be consistent (except in quotes), as I went and updated about 10 instances of it to make it a bit more consistent. :) -- sulfur 17:44, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
