Hello,

After reading all the posts on this subject, I'm included to have the CSS3
Page Media and CSS Print Profile specification require the following names
be recognized as media names, all other media would have to be selected by
width and height:

letter, legal, ledger,
a5, b5, a4, b4, a3

Where the names are not case sensitive.

Jim Bigelow, 
Editor of CSS Print Profile and CSS3 Pages Media
