Or you could do it in your head? 1" = 25.4mm. Dividing by 25 will get you close enough, particularly since advertised lengths seem to be ballpark figures rather than exact measurements.

For anyone who os interested, here's some free (as in beer) code to convert among inches, millimeters and sun that came from Murray Carter's website:

function nofocus()
{
document.convert.InUnit.focus()
}
var mmValue = 1
