chaalsBRS: Relies on datatypes to work out what kind of height there is
chaalsBRS: There is a datatype defined for floor/storey (called etage because it uses french numbering - 0 is ground, 1 is the first floor above ground, -1 is the first below ground, etc)
chaalsBRS: There is an example of how it might be used...
chaalsBRS: There is another example of how to use the "floor name" datatype to match a particular naming scheme to something easily countable.
