Fork height

This may seem like a dumb question. but when someone tells you to have the forks up in the clamps 5mm, where is the reference point where you measure from? Obviously it is the top of the clamp, but what on the fork? Is it the top of the cap? bottom of the cap right where the tube starts? Just want someone to clear that up, thanks!

some forks have a line scribed in the legs, so it will be 5mm more than the std line, if not line then often the manual will say 5mm from the cap, if you want 5mm more it will be 10mm from the cap, 3mm is a huge change BTW
