Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-2770) Needs-Discussion:6.16.18 Convert: Definition of Pica should be 1/6 in.

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2770?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=19487#action_19487 ] 

David Wheeler  commented on OFFICE-2770:

Agree, let's change "Pica" to "Pica Points"; the value of 1/72in is intended.  As with many measurement names, it's historically messy, but that seems like the most reasonable solution.
