Re: [help-texinfo] Page size

   How can I produce US letter-sized pages?  And/or, are there any
   (reliable) tools for scaling pages so that they are US letter

>From the Texinfo manual, `(texinfo) pagesizes':

| address@hidden' [WIDTH][, HEIGHT]: Custom Page Sizes
| =================================================

| You can explicitly specify the height and (optionally) width of the main
| text area on the page with the address@hidden' command.  Write this on a
| line by itself near the beginning of the Texinfo file, before the title
| page.  The height comes first, then the width if desired, separated by
| a comma.  Examples:

|      @pagesizes 200mm,150mm
|   and
|      @pagesizes 11.5in

|   This would be reasonable for printing on B5-size paper.  To emphasize,
| this command specifies the size of the _text area_, not the size of the
| paper (which is 250mm by 177mm for B5, 14in by 8.5in for legal).

|   To make more elaborate changes, such as changing any of the page
| margins, you must define a new command in `texinfo.tex' (or
| `texinfo.cnf', *note Preparing for TeX: Preparing for TeX.).

|   *Note Format with texi2dvi::, and *Note Preparing for TeX: Preparing
| for TeX, for other ways to specify address@hidden' that do not require
| changing the source file.

|   address@hidden' is ignored by `makeinfo'.
