Isn't it is true to using capitals in units like Newton, Kelvin, etc.? Hddty. (talk) 02:36, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
The names are explicitly not capitalised so that they will not be confused in-text with the scientists they are named after. The symbols for the units can however be capitalised, depending on the unit. "m" for metre is never capitalised, whereas "V" for volt always is (as seen with the emphasis of contrast in the symbol for the derived unit electron volt, "eV"). Prefices also have their own capitalisations: mega (×10^6) and milli (×10^-3) are differentiated by case as "M" and "m" respectively (hence millimetre, "mm", and megametre, "Mm").

What makes the most sense to me is: Make the row that has the base units kinda like column headings, then make the next row kinda offset so that each 'column' is between two base columns (or in the case of the rightmost one, just extending out from under the rightmost base column implying that it is derived with that and the first base column) and list therein each derived unit that uses two base units. Then the next row is derived units that use three or more base units. Not sure how hard the CSS would be on all this, though. Arlo James Barnes 23:07, 4 July 2018 (UTC)
What about the derived units that use base units that are not consecutive in the template? —Eli355 (talk) 01:28, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
