I'm sure this would be far simpler that convincing your fellow
Americans to use sensible paper sizes such as the ISO A/B/C [1]
series ...

     "Globalization starts with getting the details right.
      Inconsistent use of SI units and international
      standard paper sizes remain today a primary
      cause for U.S. businesses failing to meet
      the expectations of the global economy."
