Hi John,

We are in a similar position. We are trying to finalize our Word style sheet and are trying to find out whether it would be best to use margins that fit both A4 and Letter. With Acrobat Reader, the client's printer settings will change the margins back to the default paper format, right? Do you know of a way to freeze the look and then they can print on either one without changing the layout we created?

I'm making a template in Frame for techdoc. Ouput is to PDF for eventual
printing by clients onsite, either on A4 or US Letter. Should be transparent to
the client, i.e. no page resizing.

Any tips? Specifically, should I:
* use A4 (most popular) format and set text frame so that it prints in 8.5 x ll,
and what is the optimal text frame size?
* use a non-existant page size in between the two?
