printing margins

I have finally solved a problem that has been bugging me for years! Sometimes when I'd print postscript documents the top margin would be tiny (nonexistent), but it never occurred to me to try looking it up.

The problem is related to misconfigured paper sizes: A4 output when printed on letter. The fix likely depends on what stage of the processing chain you're on, but for LaTeX you can use the -t letter option to dvips.
