1. , Mlbs
   common symbols for one million pounds. Although "Mlbs" is seen frequently, symbols need not take the terminal -s in the plural and this dictionary takes the position that they should not; "Mlb" is correct. (Also note that the "l" is not capitalized in the symbol for the pound.)
   2. a traditional unit of mass for steam, equal to 1000 (not one million) pounds. This is one of many uses of the Roman numeral M to represent a multiple of 1000; all these uses should be replaced by the metric prefix k- (kilo-).
