The cup measures on the Conversions page are UK 10 oz cups, seldom used in practice The most commonly used cup measures are American (US) and are 8 oz/240 ml Australians use metric cups of 250 ml

Hi. I agree that in the UK our measurements are now generally given as fluid ounces and /or millilitres, but many older British recipes did use UK cup measurements. However, I am sure that we can add the US/Australian cup measures as well, to the conversion page. Thanks for bringing it to our attention --JuliaBalbilla 05:23, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

I welcome any further feedback, good or bad and look forwards to your first recipe contribution, together with 'Shopped photographs! :-) --Chef 17:02, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
