Hi Dave,

Anyone for a round of golf?

I don't know if this is correct, I just played with the words.

    On typesetting devices,
    because the e (me) macro package's line length
    is now set by the device description,
    it has changed from 6i to 6.5i.
    papersize.tmac can override this,
    e.g. troff(1)'s ā€˜-dpaper=a4lā€™,
    without needing to alter the document.
    Terminal line length remains unchanged.

Cheers, Ralph.
