While I agree there really is some logic behind the US paper sizes I suggest the gentleman taking umbrage be a little more sensitive to the US approach to ignoring international standards in this and many related areas.
The US continues to use measurement basis that the rest of the world largely abandoned except for specific special cases a while ago. Such changes are obviously not trivial for a population to embrace…but people do quickly adapt.
His example of foolscap is a case in point, it is an archaic size and very difficult to find in the UK…the ISO A sizes having been adopted years ago.
It is public record that the US was the last major player to accept SI as legal remarkably recently, and remains the last to not require it on packaging and the like. The US even insists on a different system of maritime navigation marks whilst everyone else not dominated by big brother uses a different internationally agreed approach. I am from the UK but have lived and worked in the US for over decade now. I know from personal experience how unnecessary these differences really are…and a little bit of flippancy in the face of such national arrogance seems totally appropriate to me…even if it was unintentional in this case.

English sheet sizes — with a focus on formats for writing paper and book printing. June 25, at 7: March 21, at March 11, at 2: The font size refers to the total height spanned by the characters within a font.
In most fonts, all the descenders are the same length, as are the ascenders. A single letter in the font will likely never achieve this height. Another important parameter of font size measurement is the x-height. The x-height describes the height of the lowercase letter x. This is a way of expressing the height of a character without an ascender or descender.
If the x-height of a font is large, many of the characters will appear larger than the characters in a font of the same size with a smaller x-height. For example, consider a point font with an x-height of 24 points versus a point font with an x-height of 12 points. The width of a font size is difficult to express; the average width of characters within a font is far less standardized than the height.
For example, within a font, characters such as an uppercase M span a large width whereas a lowercase i will be narrow.
To describe the allowable width of a font, designers use the concept of the em box. The em box is the theoretical box containing a capital M in the font. This describes the maximum space that any one character can occupy. One em correlates directly to one point.
