I'm working on a book in LaTeX (thank goodness :-).
When I LaTeX the file here, the output is 470 pages long.
When someone at a different site does it, the output is 530 pages.
The 'layout' package shows the following dimensions (all in pt) differ:
\oddsidemargin -21 -11
\textheight 538 462
\topmargin -39 -23
\textwidth 402 352
The page dimensions are set with:
How do you go about tracking down the cause of the differences? The
only thing I can think of is to get a copy of all the .sty files used
(perhaps using the 'snapshot' package) and switching them in one by
one, but I dread the prospect. Is there a better way?
