[Today I 
learned](http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/319652/is-1238pt-1157dd-an-exact-definition-for-the-didot-point-in-tex/319654#319654)
 that TeX supports `dd` at 1238/1157 of its points, which is slightly 
above 376 µm, *and* `nd` at 1370/107 TeX points which is intended to 
equal 375 µm. Most TeX documentation only mentions `dd`,  if at all.
