     Subject: Incorrect Page Margins When Printing or Exporting
When printing a page to my Epson Stylus C88+ in Windows XP, a shape placed  
with top y-coordinate at 17mm (top margin) actually prints with top  
y-coordinate at 8mm.  Horizontal positioning is also off.  When exporting to  
PDF and printing from either Acrobat or Reader, the top y-coordinate prints  
at 19mm (closer to the 17mm target but still off), horizontal positioning is  
still off, and the entire page seems to have scaled smaller.  The page size  
is A0 (8.5"x11").  The page displays on screen with the correct coordinates.
