Not my convenience. Australia is also metric. It's only the USA which is the last bastion of the imperial measurement system (funny, since they were so desperate to get away from everything else English ;). > Wouldn't it be a nice suggestion to ask all those US > paper suppliers to put the gsm = gr/m2 numbers on > their packages as well. Sounds like a great idea to me! At least then we could compare the european papers with the north american ones. From what I can see however, gsm doesn't *necessarily* equate to thickness. Standardisation on gsm would be a nice start though!
