Choosing measuring-units

It is a well known fact that americans don't use the same measuring-units as the rest of the world because they can't cope with a standard. To get the measuring-units you understand, either choose the SI-system which means cm, ml and Celsius even though it isn't a SI-unit but it is better than farenheit which the US-system uses. So please state what units you prefer. NOTE: It seems like there are some temperatures missing in the US-version of the recipes. This is not my fault. They are not there in the original files either. However I am working on a way to translate the Celsius-temps to Farenheight but that will take a few days/weeks. So until then, if you encounter a page with missing temperatures just change /us/ to /si/ in the URL(location). The formula is F = C*9/5 + 32. Hopefully nothing will get burnt...

Additional info

The recipes are converted from *roff to HTML with a little lpc4-hack by me, I am very unfamiliar with *roff and used "reverse engineering" to find out what the control-codes actually did. This means there can be errors in some of the files. If you find one please mail me and I'll fix it. The recipes are categorized like the original files which seem to originate from DEC somewhere. However, I got my copy from in /pub/misc (Dont ask for the *roff to HTML converter because it IS a hack)
