**Delisle** chose his scale using the temperature of boiling water as the fixed zero point and measured the contraction of the mercury (with lower temperatures) in hundred-thousandths. The Celsius scale, like the Delisle scale, originally ran from zero for boiling water down to 100 for freezing water.
