Default What format on imperial weight scales?

Hey guys,

i'm currently working on an airplane weight and balance module, and am usually working in metric units. However i want the user to be able to choose if he wants to go metric or imperial.
But which format would you like?

Thanks for your inputs

Thanks for the replies so far.
it seems to head towards xxlbs yy.yyoz or xx.xxlbs.
I am tending towards the decimal variant as it will be easier to enter. If i split it up you will need to input both fields sepereately, which personally i find annoying.

Is there anything special you would like a weight and balance scale to do?

as a user of the "imperial" system, i say, to hell with it, just do the metric option and we can adjust to it .
most of the kits i work with these days all have their c/g measurement expressed in mm or cm anyway.

If imperial, and strictly for w/b purposes, I think staying in oz rather than pounds makes adjustment calculations easier.
