Oops, spoke too quickly: length already contains portrait/landscape
implicitly, in that the first value is the width and the second (when
present) the height.  'auto' is assumed when only 'size: portrait' or
'size: landscape' is specified; so I'm back to thinking it was ok
initially.

Back to fantasai's original comment from [1]:

 > # <length>{1,2} | auto | [ <page-size> || [ portrait | landscape] ]

> This syntax does not allow <length> and 'portrait' or 'landscape' to
be specified together. This makes sense. However the rest of the text
seems to be written as if this were possible.

Can you be more specific about the text you see as problematic?

Thanks,

Melinda

	Right.

	We *do* want to allow portrait or landscape to be specified
along with the size, though.

	I think we want:

	[ <length>{1,2} | auto | <page-size> ] || [ portrait |
landscape] 

	Best wishes,

	Melinda
