Re: [BKARTS] How to print the same book on two sizes of paper

Well, I use a completely different solution from the pragmatic one
proposed by Winston (find an intermediate size that fits both sizes of
paper) -- which is to mark up the text in SGML (qv), then use a suitable
DTD (qv) for each different print requirement, whatever that requirement
might be.

But SGML is is not LaTeX; and the learning curve is pretty onerous.
Conversion from one to the other is not quite there yet (OK if you're not
using trickily-set formulae); so it's maybe something to look up under
google, but not go for yet unless you're absolutely sure what you're

But it would be my solution.
