Hi Tim,

Very nice!

There is one additional style that I would LOVE to see if you want to 
tweak it a little more and that is a Dual English/Metric scale bar. It 
would probably work best using the Thin style with English marks on top 
and Metric marks on the bottom and the units to the right or left.

Again, it is a very cool application.
