Table of Measures

Tables of measures abound.  This one includes more than a few metric cross-references.  While U.S. homemakers are not going metric, more and more imported kitchen equipment and food packages have metric markings, so it is of some utility to know, for example, that a container marked 500ml holds 1 pint or 2 cups.
