--- Comment #19 from Luke <lukebenes at hotmail.com> ---
The UI and precision problem demonstrated in Bug 115266 is yet one more reason
all instances of fonts size, line spacing, and line width should be represented
in points, their natural unit.

Expecting the user to constantly toggle units back and force because we use the
same unit for quantities that have different natural units makes no sense. The
obvious solution here is to do what every other OfficeSuite does and use the
natural units of measure. 

For 99.9% of users forcing them to find the location of this feature and
micro-manage it, it a waste of time. It's UI design failure. I strongly
disagree that we should make the micro-managing easier for the other 0.1% of
use cases. For the rare case when you do not want to use the natural unit, you
can always do the conversion manually. With the added bonus that you avoid the
precision, issue of Bug 115266.
