    Measuring is not a fool-proof way to distinguish.  I can't believe 
someone suggested that.


    There exist tiles of many sizes with asbestos.  That link lists many, 
but I'm not sure that's definitive either.

    If they crumble into a white powder, that's probably asbestos, and you 
don't want to be breathing that dust.  Neither does anyone you hire to 
remove them, so it'll cost a couple grand.
