2346    Palme           May 1998        Making Postscript and PDF
                                        International

Certain text formats, for example Postscript (MIME-Type:
application/postscript; file extension .ps) and Portable Document Format
(MIME-Type: application/pdf; file extension .pdf) specify exactly the
page layout of the printed document. The commonly used paper format is
different in North America and the rest of the world.  North America
uses the 'Letter' format, while the rest of the world mostly uses the
ISO-standard 'A4' format. This means that documents formatted on one
continent may not be easily printable on another continent. This memo
gives advice on how to produce documents which are equally well
printable with the Letter and the A4 formats.  This memo provides
information for the Internet community.  It does not specify an Internet
