    What does the 8.43 and 12.75 represent in height and width of cell

    In working with excel I notice that the default width (8.43) and default
    height (12.75) seem to be visually different. What do the numbers represent?

    Height is measured in points (72 points to the inch)
    Width is measured in points (12 points to the inch)

    Row heights are measured in points or pixels. There are 72 points to an inch
    and "maybe" 96 pixels to the inch.

    The number that appears in the Standard column width box is the average number
    of digits 0-9 of the standard font that fit in a cell.
