Hi Whirlers:

Yet another reason why I hate working with Word (2003). We are mainly a
Frame shop here, so I'm not a Word pro. Still, this one is just plain

When I open a new Word file, the page size shown is 7.25 x 9, portrait.
Not sure how it got that way. I've been to File > Page Setup >Paper, and
it says I'm using a standard 8.5 x 11 letter. Tried resetting to
defaults, nothing. I also tried other page sizes, they are all
displaying incorrectly. For example, 11 x 17 gives me a page size of
9.75 x 15.

Any ideas why this behavior is happening and what I can do to fix it?
All help is appreciated. Please cc me directly, as I'm on digest.
