    Re: Abbreviation of Nautical Mile
    From: Jim Thompson

    John K, I just looked this up in preparation for teaching the Power & Sail
    Squadron AP course this winter.  The CPS-ECP AP Students Notes states that
    there is no accepted abbreviation, which is why they standardized on "M" for
    the purposes of their courses.  There is no reference to who wrote that
    piece of information, but I have to assume that course committees dug into
    that issue in the recent past.  I prefer NM, but statute mile is never used
    in CPS-ECP courses, only nautical mile, so there would be no confusion.
