For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
This brings up a question that has intrigued me, ever since we moved
to Europe and met the A4 page size: How is it that these different
page sizes evolved? How did it come about that the U.S. has one paper
standard and Europe another?
Well, OK, that's 2 questions, but it's the same thing. Does anybody
out there in tech-whirler-land know the answers?
