Capitalization
The symbols for volt and hertz, which appear in electrical sections, have the first letter capitalized. -[[User:PierreAbbat|phma]] 20:53, 24 February 2006 (EST)
 
==Conversions==
I had no idea until today that we had a policy which states that measurement conversions should be provided in an article! There has been no action on this page for four years, and it seems to me that this policy is not being implemented at all. In all the star nominations I have seen or been involved with for example, not once has there been a request for a conversion of units to be shown in brackets after the local norm. I see this is also the case with at least some older star articles.
 
It seems that this is a policy which has fallen on hard times and nobody seems to miss it. In this day and age is there really anyone out there who cannot relate 5 km to a distance in miles, or vice versa? I would like to propose this need for a conversion in brackets is removed as a guideline. Thoughts?--[[User:Burmesedays|Burmesedays]] 22:13, 18 May 2010 (EDT)
