Disambiguate

This probably ought to be moved to Metre (length) or Metre (unit), because of Meter (music) (and also Meter (poetry). J. Noel Chiappa 07:49, 30 May 2008 (CDT)

Sounds good to me. I would prefer Metre (unit). Alexander Wiebel 08:57, 30 May 2008 (CDT)
I moved it as (measurement unit). Hope that's OK. Martin Baldwin-Edwards 09:02, 30 May 2008 (CDT)
I renamed it Metre (unit) which is shorter and also consistent with some other units of measurement. Hope that's okay. Milton Beychok 23:37, 19 September 2008 (CDT)

Reorganization

I'd say this article is a bare outline. By breaking it up into topics with their own headers, I hope it will be easier to add details to the article.John R. Brews 14:27, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Standard metre

I have added a paragraph on the standard metre as realized in a lab. This paragraph closely follows one written by myself in the WP article on the metre, with some changes in footnoting. John R. Brews 18:01, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
