Should I use numbers like 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc. when typing dates?

Numbers: st, nd, th and rd

Try to avoid the urge to put "st," "nd," "th," or "rd" after dates when they appear in your newsletter. For example, if the date you are using is May 5, do not use May 5th. However, if it is a common term that you "hear" when you say it like fifth floor or 5th floor, use it.
