Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-2770) 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=22758#action_22758 ] 

Eike Rathke commented on OFFICE-2770:

We want "Pica" or "picapt" for Pica points 1/72 inch, for consistency also "Pica2" or "picapt2" or "Pica^2" or "picapt^2", and "Pica3" or "picapt3" or "Pica^3" or "picapt^3".

We want "pica" for Pica 1/6 inch, and "pica2" or "pica^2", and "pica3" or "pica^3".

Note that the former "Pica" differs from the latter "pica" in case, capital "P" and lower case "p".

Yes, differing only in case is confusing, but that's what Excel2010 came up with. All unit symbols in CONVERT are case sensitive, so can be distinguished.

Avoid typographic quotation marks not only for unit symbols, but also in function syntax and expression syntax and where quotes denote a literal Text string. For example also in 5.8 References the latest change, ReferenceError ::= "#REF!" should have ASCII quotes instead.
