Point System
* Point
- 1/72 of an inch.
- 72 points equals 1 inch.
* To convert inches to points: inches x 72 = points

x 5
--- ---
72 32

(72 / 32) x 5 = 11.25 points

or has my basic 1st year of HS algebra abandoned me?

We have a client who has just specified that all body text must be 5/32
inches and all warnings and cautions must be 3/16 inches.

I can't find my ruler that maps inches to points. For Myriad Roman, can
anyone help? I am stumped. I am also brain dead today.

Responses are probably best off-list, so as to not waste more band-width
than needed with this dumb question.
