Table width units

What are the valid units to define a size in Notes? E.g. you can set the width of a table-column to 1", or 2,54cm, but are there any more? Is it possible to set a width in pixels??

    Nope, that's it.  I think internally it may use pixels, but it always displays as either English or Metric.

    in standard Notes you can input mm, but they are converted to cm (and x% is misinterpreted)

    in DXL you can use CSS2 units, as the help says:
    The %length; entity defines horizontal and vertical measurements in units of inches, centimeters, millimeters, points, percentages, or pixels as defined by CSS2.  This entity is used in the <border>, <button>, <embeddeddatepicker>, <embeddedview>, <field>, <font>, <horizrule>, <layout>, <picture>, <table>, and <tablecolumn> elements.

    Yeah, but on export, it uses the client measurement, and on import, it converts back using the importing clients tranlation of other units.
