Rebecca, Wolfgang--Thanks You make a good point--one I can get behind, as it would be me doing the extra work ;-) Like you said, I think the others were saying the same thing... You just said it in a way that hit home.
Our writers are all American, but the majority of people in our company (and more than half of our customers) are of international origin. We were hired to make everything look like it comes from the U.S. But, then sometimes we get flack for "Americanizing" everything. We thought the page size thing might be an issue that would give us grief. I would be fine with the scenario you describe--hope I can sell it to the rest of the company.
