All HOWTOs have been run thru a script which produces
PostScript and PDF using this new size requirement. You're
right, it is hardly noticeable, but hopefully will suffice.

            Letter    8.5x11in (216x279mm)
            A4        8.27x11.69in (210x297mm)
our size>>  Universal 8.27x11in (210x279mm)


On another note, the search has been "upgraded". For example,
this request has been implemented (link provided):

    It would be nice if, when I search for a word that is in the
    title of a FAQ or HOWTO, a link to that FAQ or HOWTO's contents
    page was the first thing in the results.
