Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • n Em (Print) The portion of a line formerly occupied by the letter m, then a square type, used as a unit by which to measure the amount of printed matter on a page; the square of the body of a type.
    • ***
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n em The name of the thirteenth letter of the alphabet, usually written simply m or M.
    • n em In printing, the square of any size of type. The large square here shown is the em of the size pica; the small one, one fourth the size (one half the height and breadth), is the em of the size nonpareil, the one here used. The em is the unit of measurement in calculating the amount of type in a piece of work, as a page, a column, or a book, the standard of reckoning being 1,000; thus, this page or this book contains so many thousand, or so many thousand and hundred, ems. In the United States it is also the unit in calculating the amount of work done by a compositor, while the en is generally used for that purpose in Great Britain.

Recalling that the boundary value problem (15) is characterized by emπ only, which follows from substituing x = r e Fπ in (15), we observe that the inequality (D6) is satisfied at least up to emπ ≤ 25 (where we start to arrive at the limits of our numerical procedure), see Fig. 10b.
