  1. Conversion from Twip to Pixel (X):1Twip=0.05Pixel (X)1\, \text{Twip} = 0.05\, \text{Pixel (X)}

To convert 200 twips to pixels:200Twips×0.05=10Pixels (X)200\, \text{Twips} \times 0.05 = 10\, \text{Pixels (X)}

  1. Conversion from Inch to Millimeter:1Inch=25.4Millimeters1\, \text{Inch} = 25.4\, \text{Millimeters}

To convert 2 inches to millimeters:2Inches×25.4=50.8Millimeters2\, \text{Inches} \times 25.4 = 50.8\, \text{Millimeters}

By following these steps and using the appropriate conversion factors, accurate conversions between different typography units can be performed.
