Building the documents is difficult -- there are lots of tools
involved, and dealing with tex is not a pleasant experience.  (Which
is why getting away from that is a good idea...)  Using the PLT PDFs
makes more sense.

There shouldn't be much problems with printing letter sized documents
on A4 paper -- it's the other way that is usually problematic.
(Letter size is only 6mm wider than A4, but 18mm shorter; and on top
of that, horizontal margins tend to be much bigger than vertical
