> Hello Akira and all,
> Hendri Adriaens (cc'd) reported to me that the dvips 5.96 in TL07

> %%Orientation: Landscape.
> The specials are using dvips prolog variables, rather low level, but I
> don't think we intended to change things in this regard?
> The DVI file produced from TL05 is just the same as in TL07, so it's all
> dvips.
> I'm attaching the .tex, .dvi, my TL05 .ps+.pdf, and my TL07 .ps+.pdf.
> PDF's made with ps2pdf, GPL Ghostscript 8.54; the problem is most
> apparent when viewing the pdf's (the 07 one is chopped off because it's
> in portrait mode), but the original culprit is in the .ps's, I believe.
> Help?
