A "micron" is a micrometer, or one-millionth of a meter, or 1/1000th of a
millimeter, and is abbreviated with the Greek letter mu (extended ASCII,
so I won't use it here). Paper is _much_ thicker than a micrometer -- when
pressed together, my SRII rulebook (minus the covers) is about 16 mm thick
for 300 pages, translating to 0.053 mm per page: 53 micrometers per page.
