Nope, that was MFD.
Milli never meant Micro, not even in countries that still measure with thumbs and sticks to this day.

And...you think that M means micro, not MEGA?  Where do you think I said or intimated that milli [ever] meant micro?

Right there mate.

Plus, "MFD" is not SI prefix + SI unit, so they can do whatever they want in terms of capitalization. And it's pretty easy to distinguish a microfarad cap from a megafarad cap of the same voltage.
MFD use died out for good reason, though.

Don't call me mate.  Don't mis-quote me.  Have a good life.

Since you're smart and I am dumb- how do I block you on this board?

I've seen mF mean microfarad more than a few times over the years.
Also MF, and maybe some poeple got lazy and were used to pF, so they use mF as well for micro.
MFD was what was commonly printed on early caps, but often shortend to MF on schematics.
