    Re: Abbreviation of Nautical Mile

    John, I've always seen and used "nm". In the context of nautical navigation,
    there's nothing else that will be confused with this. Those who use "M" in a
    consistent universe where all nav will be done in nautical miles as opposed
    to statute are probably OK--as long as they are the only ones who will be
    reading their marks. In a less professional environment, "nm" is still less
    likely to be confused for anything else.
