Turns out the unit Micron uses the Unicode character U+03BC
But the "micro" SI prefix is the Unicode character U+00B5

They look identical, but this allows the "Micron" unit avoid conflict with the SI prefix.
In the source code, I mistakenly defined the Micron as 1_μm instead of 1_µm (see what I did there?). Even though it looks identical, the second one is the correct definition, as 1 micrometer (with the "Micro" symbol), the other one is using the letter Mu, so it's some base unit nobody ever heard of.

Good grief that's confusing! Are you going to define the micro-micron too, just to have more "fun"? Smile

EDIT: How do you type a mu and/or micro in newRPL, anyway?

EDIT: Also, I was mildly surprised not to see the kWh under energy.
