I'm having trouble with what I thought would be a simple thing: printing a
Word doc in which a graphic extends to the edge. The graphic sits in the
upper left corner and is supposed to "bleed" to the edge.

But instead of letting the graphic do this, Word overlays a margin (or crops
the graphic) so that the lower-right corner of the graphic is in the same
place, but the top and left sides of the graphic are missing/cropped.

I've looked on and, as well as searched the archives.
I tried the fixes I found (mostly setting the graphic to "float over" the
text, which it already was, and toying with the margins), but they didn't
work. Unfortunately, leaving the overlaid/cropped margin as-is is not an
option. Both my ideas and my patience are exhausted.

Does anyone know how to browbeat Word into submission?

<<Important(?) details: Word 2000 SR-1, using a HP C-4500 PS Laserjet print
driver to print to .prn, then distilling using Distiller 4 into PDF. The PDF
will later be printed by a special printer that can print from edge to edge.
I've tried both putting the graphic in the header to be printed as a
watermark, as well as part of the "regular" page. The graphic's layout
properties have "absolute position"-ed to the top & side of the page.>>
