Default true or not

radian's are a measure of angle , as said before and are basically a metric replacement for the old degree's ,minute's and second's system that most people still use .

the mildot is based on this system and has been said in previous posts a factor of 1-1000 is a true mildot
however as most people still use imperial then the midot has been adopted to work within this system also.

so true mildot is purely metric where as if used with yard's or inch's then it can not be a true mildot.

err hope this helps

ps lets not forget that a metre is 3 inches longer than a yard
