As the aspect ratio is different between A4 and US Letter, either they
must distort the page or leave margins (probably the latter).
I can finally buy A4 paper at Staples, if I wanted it, at only a small
premium over letter size (compared to the 10:1 it is at a specialist
importer), but only in one or two types (compared to scores of types
of regular paper). But.. European binders have 4 holes instead of 3,
and file folders would probably be a bit short etc. etc. The North
American market is big enough that whatever benefits might be
gained from changing to the outside standard would probably not
outweight the costs in the medium or short term.
Anyway, I'll gladly set Acrobat to produce A4 PDFs if requested to
do so. ;-)
