    So I set the column's width to 15 using "MS Excel 2016" -> "Home" -> "Format" -> "Column Width...".
    It's using the default standard font character unit and I'm using the default font Calibri 11.

    But I noticed that internally, inside the XLSX file itself, in the "\xl\worksheets\sheet1.xml", MS Excel has stored this value as ~15.711.
    My question is why, why is it different?
