Dear Mr. Norma Shulman,

If you want to be international, why do not you follow international
standard rather than regional/national standards.

Paper sizes have been standardized by ISO TC6/SC3: Dimensions and
grammages of paper, board and pulp products. Related international
standards include;

ISO 216:1975 Writing paper and certain classes of printed matter
-- Trimmed sizes -- A and B series
which is under revision for 2nd Edition,

ISO 353:1975 Processed writing paper and certain classes of printed matter
-- Method of expression of dimensions,

ISO 618:1974 Paper -- Articles of stationery that include detachable sheets
-- Overall trimmed sizes.

The unit "inch" is not international and not included in SI, therefore,
here in Japan its use will be hobidden and fined.

Hope it will help.
With best regards,
Hiroaki Ikeda
