What is the significance of the 786 as used by many Muslims?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org
Answer

The numerals 786 in no way represent ?Bismillaah al-Rahmaan al-Raheem? and is not the Sunnat way. If one fears abuse of the letter, etc. ?Bismillaah al-Rahmaan al-Raheem? should be recited verbally at the beginning of the letter which will suffice for the written script.
