| Just what size is are A4 and A3 prints? Also, I should note that I've
| heard/read people remark that they can print off scanned images up to such
| and such size (e.g., 11"x14"), but I'm not always clear about just what
| the image is that is placed on the paper. What, for example, is the usual
| image size for a print on A4 paper? Does it vary much?
