Our standard user's manual/design manual size is 7 1/2 x 9 1/4. We do a
few 8 1/2 x 11 books at the customer's request (the internal product group)
and we do some preliminary printings in 8 1/2 x 11 (but the doc itself is
done in 7 1/2 x 9 1/4 format). We do a Product Information or Product
Summary book in 8 1/2 x 11, but the majority of our books are 7 1/2 x 9 1/4.
