Maybe the french title is one of the reasons for the USA not picking up 
on these units? (So let me threaten once again to kick the "in" unit out 
of context.)

Here it fluctuates from zero to 15 (and behind the single pane glass in 
the office room with sun on it then 18 or more). Now of course, given 
units, you have to guess how much that is becuase you're with your 
French foot in Celsius, and the English one in Farhenheit and with both 
feet in Kelvin (for your book).
