   International Paper Sizes (mostly taken from BS4000:1968)
       "A" series: Paper and boards, trimmed sizes.

       "A" sizes are in the ratio 1 : sqrt(2).  A0 has a total area of 1
       square metre.  Everything is rounded to the nearest millimetre.  Thus,
       A0 is 841mm x 1189mm.  Every other A size is obtained by doubling or
       halving another A size.
