This was requested by Hendri Adriaens:

would it be possible to add a `screen' paper size to
YAP? Screen has a
ratio of 4/3 which cannot be accomplished with any
paper size. What I
do in my new class (called presentation) is to start from
letterpaper
and adjust that so the ratio is good. So 8.5 x 11
becomes 8.25 x
11in. Of course, dvips doesn't have a matching paper
either, so we
just let it make letter paper and using a pdf crop box,
we finally
chop off the white bar (.25in) from the paper. As the
presentation
class will be able to produce presentations that can be
viewed in dvi
(so not like prosper), it would be nice if there would be a
matching
paper size for this screen ratio.
