Message should use binary prefix symbols (IEC prefixes)
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Messages such as MediaWiki:Configure-setting-wgMaxShellFileSize (doubtless there are others) use the ambiguous symbol "KB" for the kibibyte (1 kibibyte = 1024 bytes). The unambiguous and standard symbol "KiB" should be used instead.
