First draft
:::: In menues in Canadian restaurants I often see boottled beers measured in ml and draught beer in Oz. -- [[User:Elgaard|elgaard]] 08:23, 2004 Sep 30 (EDT)
== First draft ==
So, taking into account the discussion above, I started a first draft of this document. I think I captured the consensus opinion, but please review.
One exception: some people seem to think that providing distances in miles or height in feet ''at all'' outside the US is wrong. I think that Americans traveling outside the US will be better served with converted units provided in parentheses; I don't see a good reason for omitting them.
Finally: I tried to take into account the improbable situation that a country uses neither metric nor imperial units, but I couldn't think of an example. If anyone can come up with one, it'd be appreciated.
Comments and criticisms welcome. --[[User:Evan|Evan]] 13:29, 30 Sep 2004 (EDT)
