In the US we use English units (feet, miles, degrees F, etc) while much of the rest of the world uses the metric system (meters, kilometers, degrees, etc). When repsonding to a post from someone from outside the US, I try to list both sets of units, just to make the post make sense to everyone. To do this, I just open up another browser window with a unit conversion site and get the numbers I need. I was wondering if it would be possible to have a simple set of unit conversions on the forum reply page so that we would not have to flip back and forth. This might also encourage folks to include both sets of units in their replies.
The units that I usually have to convert are feet to meters (elevation), miles to kilometers (distance) and degrees F to degrees C. Of course, we would need to convert in both directions (English to metric and metric to English).
