International System of Units [SI], prefixes

SI prefixes strictly represent powers of 10, they should not be used to represent powers of 2.
Thus, one kilobit, or 1 kbit, is 1000 bit and not 210 bit = 1024 bit.
Scientific notation only uses 103, 106, 109 and so on.


Engineering Symbols
alpha: a, use FONT FACE = "SYMBOL" a
beta: b, use FONT FACE = "SYMBOL" b
epsilon: e, use FONT FACE = "SYMBOL" e
phi: f, use FONT FACE = "SYMBOL" f
pi: p, use FONT FACE = "SYMBOL" p
Omega: W, use FONT FACE = "SYMBOL" W

Engineering prefixes are in multiplies of three. 101, 103, 106 and so on [Engineering Notation].

I use the html sup command to make the exponent, encased in the less than and greater than signs.
