Thanks for clarifying, Marc. That would just ruin your day!. I remember it
happening on a sound negative once too. 

Yes, the length is stated on the label - sometimes you'll see 2010 ft too.
But I think that in practice if you measure it, they are always a few feet
over, for what it's worth. Maybe not 20 ft though:-(   Same as a 450g jar of
jam usually has 460g in it, as the supplier can be prosecuted if there is
only 440g. (Even if you think you are buying a 500g jar!).
