./print/tex-siunitx,

Typesetting values with units requires care to ensure that the

combined mathematical meaning of the value plus unit

combination is clear. In particular, the SI units system lays

down a consistent set of units with rules on how they are to be

used. However, different countries and publishers have

differing conventions on the exact appearance of numbers (and

units). A number of LaTeX packages have been developed to

provide consistent application of the various rules: SIunits,

sistyle, unitsdef and units are the leading examples. The

numprint package provides a large number of number-related

functions, while dcolumn and rccol provide tools for

typesetting tabular numbers. The siunitx package takes the best

from the existing packages, and adds new features and a

consistent interface. A number of new ideas have been

incorporated, to fill gaps in the existing provision. The

package also provides backward-compatibility with SIunits,

sistyle, unitsdef and units. The aim is to have one package to

handle all of the possible unit-related needs of LaTeX users.

The package relies on LaTeX 3 support from the l3kernel and

l3packages bundles.
