    Thanks, I ended up googling it and the gammar nazi says that the proper use of dos and don't as a plural term is, dos and don'ts. 


    It looks weird but I guess that it's the way it is.  smile

    Dos and don'ts, I reckon. An apostrophe is there to indicate either a missing letter, or a possessive. So don'ts has one to indicate missing "o", but there's no missing letter in dos.

    Similarly, 1960's should be 1960s, unless it's a possesive, such as "the 1960's air of change...."
