Hello,

Some more information on metric units:

<snip>

In general, metric units are never capitalized
unless they are derived from proper names.

</snip>

This is not entirely accurate -- prefixes for units above "k" generally *are*
capitalized. The term "megabit" is most properly abbreviated
as "Mb" not "mb."

By the way, the site, http://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Units/index.html,
shows the prefixes above "k" as being capitalized.
