## Definition: Agate

An agate is a unit of typographical measure. It is approximately 5 1/2 points (1/14 inch or 1.814 mm). It can refer to either the height of a line of type, or to a font that is 5.5 points. An Agate font is commonly used to display statistical data or legal notices in newspapers. It is considered to be the smallest point size that can be printed on newsprint and remain legible.

## Definition: Meter

The metre, symbol: m, is the basic unit of distance (or of "length", in the parlance of the physical sciences) in the International System of Units. The internationally-accepted spelling of the unit in English is "metre", although the American English spelling meter is a common variant. However, both American and non-American forms of English agree that the spelling "meter" should be used as a suffix in the names of measuring devices such as chronometers and micrometers.
