[talk-au] Road name abbreviation exception?

Final got the federal govt "Style Manual" and looked through it.
The only bit on St and Saint is that they should be treated the same in 
an index .. the St should be expanded for the listing order but printed 
as St.

There are a number of places where examples are given for some other 
things that include things like "St Mary".

So I would take it that the federal govt "Style Manual" would accept the 
use of St rather than have it expanded in all situations, but they don't 
state it explicitly.
They do comment that the telephone book can be used as an example of 
correct addressing...
This comes from the sixth edition 2002.

So .. looks like St unexpanded is officially accepted.
