Hello Whr-lers
I've been asked to change my Word doc from the standard 8.5X11 size to a
7X9 size for the final printed, bound manual. Are there any issues I should
be aware of before I dive in? How much of a gutter do you think I should
leave for binding--does the gutter depend on the type of binding?

And right now, my doc is in a lovely fat Bookman 12 pt font, which would
make the printed 7X9 manual about the size of a phone book--how small do
you think I can go on font (our end users will be youngish IT people,
presumably with goodish eye-sight ;)?
