Printing and Ledger paper type.


Yes, sure. I wrote about US Ledger paper size.
It should be mentioned, the US Ledger's size confuses not only me, but Gnomeprint job also.
So, what is the best choice to do?
1. Assume the US Ledger is 11x17 inches size, just the same as 'Inkscape' project is doing.
2. Replace US Ledger with US Tabloid paper which is 11x17in exactly. The same as 'GIMP'
    project is doing.
