What does "Er." stand for?

The "Er." designation that you see used throughout this site and in some correspondence is an abbreviation of the non-gener title “Engineer”, used in place of the generic titles of Mr., Mrs., or Ms. in front of a person’s name. It is similar to the abbreviations of Dr. for Doctor or Pr. for Pastor.
