You are wright that A4 is different that 8 1/2 by 11. The paper is
longer and not as wide so there is more room in landscape mode. So this
should help on the oposite. The unit of measure thing, well i dont think
it is an issu. Tha AS400 work in CPI whatever the contry (I have worked
in US, Canada, France and Belgium). In fact, i think it's the 15cpi that
may be my problem because most printer will supprot 17cpi but fiew 15.
But mabe  netscape act on that unit of measure thing. I will look into


PS How did you find out this problem was occuring in Europe?
