If it's LaTeX, I'd suggest
		\mu \textrm{m}%

Or perhaps even better
	\ensuremath{\mu \mathrm{#1}}%
Of course, you need to add \usepackage{xspace} in your header.

That way, you'll just have to type \micro{some unit} to get the  
expected result. You can even drop the {} and just add a space if the  
unit is a single character. If you're really lazy, you can choose a  
shorter name (such as \u, if available) for the command.

Or use a snippet:

That would make your LaTeX code easier to read, in my opinion. And  
the command will work inside or outside math environments.
