Yes, but why should I need to import all of the ISO paper size definitions
thereby at least partially reinventing the same wheel, and creating code
with potentially significant maintenance issues, etc. when SAS *already*
knows the current paper dimensions internally. I just need SAS to give 'em
to me! BTW, I've already written an IMHO ugly macro at this point which
allows me to obtain the dimensions (by parsing option and registry values).
But surely there must be an easier way (or at least there ought to be)!
