Thanks to Rob, I've now added metric measurements on key pages on the main Cavy Cages site.

On the home page, if you click on Metric, some other pages will automatically display the relevant page text in metric. Those include the How-to, the Cubes & Coro, and Types & Styles pages.

On the How-to page, you can also switch that one page back and forth from English to Metric. On that page, whichever version you are on, if you click printable page, it will display the correct version.

On the home page you can switch back forth between 'modes.'

Please let me know of any corrections.

Thanks,
Teresa

Cross posting from Guinea Lynx:

Upon further review, it seems that the metric units might need further calibration.

1 m^2 equals 10.7639 sq ft

1 sq ft equals 0.092903 m^2
7.5 sq ft equals 0.696773 m^2
10.5 sq ft equals 0.975482 m^2
13 sq ft equals 1.20774 m^2

The conversions currently on the site seem to be the linear conversions from feet to meters.

For example, 10.5 (linear) ft equals 3.2004 (linear) meters

Yup. I should have double-checked. But should it be expressed in decimals of meters or in centemeters? That's why I never did this myself. I don't know what really makes sense in common usage.

1 m^2 equals 10,000 cm^2.

I'd go with square meters.

It's already in inches. This is an alternative. And not everyone loves inches :)
