I don't understand your question - sorry.

Are you asking if there is a Standard Notation for
Height Length Depth ?
vs Length Depth Height ... or whatever ..
... if so - Good question ! ..

.. but I fear it might revert us to the endless
day-month-year month-day-year date notation ..
or my fav year-month-day
doh !

Not at all. YMD is a standard that makes sense. MDY is standard
notation that makes no sense. WLD, DWL, or whatever isn't standard
anywhere. There isn't even a standard for which axis is length. How
can there be an argument when there is no common ground on which to
argue. Wait, it's called "social media".

doh !

Indeed

"old" is a relative thing (2005, 1955, or 1905?). I think that the
older books often assume that the user will adopt a plan to his or her
needs. In particular, many of the materials of yesteryear are not as
easily available these days, so you will probably have to adjust a plan
anyway. Just curious, what are you reading and what are you planning to
build?

3/8" = .375 inches = 09.52 mm would be the thickness then width then
length

9.5 mm by 269.87 mm by 368.3 mm

9.5 x 270 x 368

Thx Markem I was disturbed because in france we begin by the Higer in the quotation system: here 368 (L) x 270 (l) x 9.5 (h) L for lenght / Small l for width and Small h ( witch mean height) for thickness... Thx a lot !
