Geoff,

no problem with the suggestion...

To the second point, I can not contribute in a qualified manner, as English
is not my working language, and in German, any noun is capitalized anyway.
So, I would capitalize Ampère as a unit anyway, but...

Max Wyss raised a few important clarifications to my previous post:

<<Despite the attempted Friday humor, the SI is clear:>>

D'oh! Didn't event think to check SI. Thanks for suggesting that.

And concerning my statement that <<Unfortunately, good ol' Andre Ampere
wasn't a Dead White _English_ Male (nor was his colleague Coulomb, whose own
eponymous units go into making amperes <g>), so evidently he (they) missed
out on the capitalization of the unit named after him. I've never seen cap-A
Amp.>>

True, but misleading. I was referring to the spelled-out words and their
abbreviations, not the SI units. Bad Geoff! <g>
