Is centigrade capitalized? - sm

Posted: Aug 07, 2011

I find that Celsius is capitalized, but no help with centigrade.

Anyone ? thanks.....

no caps needed - nm

centigrade was replaced with Celsius in 1948 - another MT

centigrade is an earlier temperature scale that was replaced with the Celsius scale named after Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius.

this doc still says centigrade so - centigrade it is

He still uses cc too, instead of ml, so he gets cc in his reports.
