Makes no sense to me. Help!

1/8" would be 2 X 1/16", etc.

Takes 16 1/16" to make an inch.
Or 4 1/4" to make an inch.

Loro:

I don't know where your numbers came from, because they are probably not
numbers -- just symbolic representations of same. If you are working a
spreadsheet, check the data typing to be sure you are working with
"numbers", if that is your intent, rather than "text" or "symbols". I've
encountered similar befuddlements in MS Excel work, and the reason is always
that I've formatted cells with the wrong data type.

Hope this helps some. If not, please let us know what application you are
working with.

Sorry, I should have said what it was from start, but I thought the
notation would be obvious to you guys. It's actually in a table of
shoe sizes and you are supposed to measure the length of your feet.
I'll mail them before I order, but I wanted find out what I could on
my own first. Here is the table and the n/0 construct occurs several times.
<http://www.softstarshoes.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=page.display&page_id=22>

And yeah, you may laugh at the thought of me in one of those mocs.
I'm experiencing feet bliss here since I started to use minimalist
shoes AKA as barefoot shoes (no supporting padding, thin soft soles
and flat as slices of bread). I've thrown all my orthopedically
correct shoes with support in every possible place away. It's scary
how easily we are tricked into believing we need this or that... The
shoes I've already got still look like shoes though, but now I'm
ready to try these. Geronimo!

Note: If you laugh more than a minute I will haunt you, wearing my
mocs of course. ;-)

I've solved it, and this actually makes us on-topic again. Those clowns
have specified a width and height slightly off from the true dimensions
of the image. What you see are scaling artefacts. If you right-click
and view image you'll find, that what's actually meant here are eighths.

Goodness! You're right, of course, but my copy of Firefox 4.0.1 seemed
not to lose the 0/8 difference, so I'd never had spotted that.

I would, but it's only for kids. I've drawn the contour of my foot on
a paper, but according to their conversion table I'm an European 40 -
41 and I'm not, more like 38 - 39. Maybe I convert to the wrong kind
of inches. On the other hand the footprint on the paper does look
like the Yeti had put its paw on it... Better talk to them.

Many thanks!

Lotta:

It may help you to have available on-screen horizontal and vertical rulers.
There's an old freeware app called "Screen Loupe" which has these rulers in
its Tools menu. The magnifier won't work in Windows 7 Aero mode, but will
work in Windows 7 Classic mode. The rulers work in both modes.

If you have trouble from this site, I'll be happy to email a .zip file to
you, if you will just send me your personal email address.

How you get my personal address on this public website is another issue.
I've no experience emailing person-to-person in NoteTab's forums, so beyond
officially authorizing you to have my address I am clueless.

Thanks Harold, but I actually have it already. The measuring isn't
the problem really, I can do it on paper, it's just that the sizes in
their tables don't add up. I need to talk to them anyway since there
are other things I want to ask so I'll let them sort it out.

The original sender's email address is in the headers if you can make
them visible in your email program.

Let me amplify Lotta's answer. This is not a website or a forum but a
mailing list, meaning a pseudo-email-address distributiong all incoming
mail to a lot of real adresses. Using this you get all the power and
features of your mail program. Yahoo also offer a web interface into the
list. This is a nice fallback when not at home and using a someone
else's computer but nothing more.
While you need to become accepted as a member before reading posts the
normal way the Web interface is open to all. For this and other reasons
addresses are protected. You can still send mail to participants through
a web form.

See the list of links you'll see at the end of any message - that's if
you've set your YahooGroups preferences to "Traditional". If you don;t
your mail is invested with bandwidth wasteing graphical adverts, and
you don;t see the links...
