## Unit Information

Mile
/mʌɪl/

### What is the Mile?

The mile is a unit of length in the imperial unit system with the symbol mi.

It was originally an English unit but was adopted by many countries who all had their own slight variation on definition. The English mile, however, is equal to 63,360 inches, 5280 ft or 1760 yards.

The UK still uses the mile on all roadway signs rather than the kilometre; its SI "equivalent". It used to have the symbol 'm' until SI was established and it was changed to avoid confusion with the unit metre.

### What is the Point?

It is the smallest unit in the world of typography. There are 12 points in a pica.

In physical printing methods / press systems, the point size is the height of the metal press body on which the font's letters are made. When applied to the digital type space, letters are designed around a theoretical size, an em square which is scaled to the relative point size (when specified of course!).
