    Re: The mil as a unit of angle.
    From: Trevor Kenchington

    I see that I dropped a couple of "Norths" in my last posting. It should
    have read:
    
    > 300 mils would be North North East one-half North. There is no such
    > thing as North North East by North, which would be a full point northward
    > from North North East and so identical to North by East (i.e. 200 mil).
    > The odd-numbered points are always named from the nearest cardinal or
    > ordinal point (e.g. North or North East), not from the intermediate
    > ("inter-ordinal"?) ones like North North East.
    
    Nothing like a few dropped words to make a confusing topic incomprehensible.
