Remark on expressing units and quantities
The AR4 deals with this task in a rather loose manner, what may
occasionally make complicate the understanding.
Czech translations try to adhere a bit more
(even if not fully) to the recommended rules
as published within SP811, see NIST: PDFs Available,
http://physics.nist.gov/Pubs/pdf.html. For a quick introduction,
read the checklist, at pages v and vi.
