Yes. This change to (mu latin) worked. Thank you so much for the
detailed explanations.
I think it is preferable to use upright greek letters in units.
The shape of (mu latin) in the latin modern font isn't the prettiest
design, but is still better than mixing italic mu with other upright
letters in units.
Besides, I guess, (mu latin) instead of u can be used in text-mode units?
