Didot System

In typography, a type measurement used in continental Europe which uses the cicero (1 cicero = 0.178 inch) and the Didot point (1 Didot point = 0.0148 inch; 6 Didot points = 1 cicero) as the basic units of measurement. The Didot system also uses units called corps; 1 cicero = 12 corps. See Point System.
