If you want to represent measurements, as distinct from counts, you need
to provide the measurement in the units actually measured.

One Word to write them all,             John Cowan <cowan@ccil.org>
  One Access to find them,              http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
One Excel to count them all,
  And thus to Windows bind them.                --Mike Champion
