Subject Re: [Calc] Feature request: Change default cell width from 2,27cm to 2,50cm
Date Sat, 02 Jun 2012 18:54:27 GMT
2.54 cm to the inch, it certainly is by law. It follows from legislation in the 80s, I think,

which defined the UK yard as 0.9144 metres exactly.  If you do your arithmetic that leads
to 
2.54 cm to the inch, exactly.

Best wishes
