The little quality marks in between the numbers? Duh... The more marks, the higher quality the ruler. The steel ones with lotsa marks = highest quality. Kindergraden wood ones with fewer marks = low quality.
I also heard the wooden kind have fewer quality marks so they'll leave cleaner welts when the nuns hit'cha.
