I cannot test this format. I could try to reduce the wasted top margin, but 
the best should be to make a test after the change.
Could someone, able to compile Amaya, adjust and test values defined in the
presentation schema Amaya/amaya/HTMLP.P?

#ifdef US_PAPER
#ifdef LANDSCAPE
        Width: 23.8 cm;
        Height: 18.2 cm;
        VertPos: Top = Enclosing . Top + 0.8 cm;
        HorizPos: Left = Enclosing . Left + 2.7 cm;
#else { LANDSCAPE }
        Width: 16.2 cm;
        Height: 23.8 cm;
        VertPos: Top = Enclosing . Top + 0.8 cm;
        HorizPos: Left = Enclosing . Left + 2.7 cm;
#endif { LANDSCAPE }
#else { US_PAPER }
