By weight, 16 ounces = 1 pound.
Ounces in liquid measure do not have a standard weight -- it's a volume measurements.

Do you have the cookbook, "The Joy of Cooking?" It has a conversion table for all kinds of measurements toward the back - I've got a permanent bookmark there!

As they used to say, "A pint's a pound, the world around".

Actually, in the UK, a pint is 20 fluid oz, not 16. So when looking at UK recipes you have to take this into account. Much better to use grams and litres!
