    You're quite right. It never occurred to me that my comment could
    possibly be construed as a reflection on Dan, and it definitely  wasn't
    intended that way. For me, his suggestion that the two abbreviations
    could be confused immediately evoked a comical image of somebody
    attempting to plot a nanometer on a nautical chart, a scenario I
    consider pretty unlikely.  However, I certainly respect and applaud
    Dan's attention to establishing unequivocal abbreviations.
