So weren't you gonna buy <measure quantity="0.5" unit="gal" commodity="ice cream">half
a gallon</measure>, baby

a gallon</measure>, baby?
The unit should normally be named using the standard abbreviation for an SI unit (see further http://www.bipm.org/en/si/; http://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Units/). However, encoders may also specify measurements using informally defined units such as lines or characters.
