  Now that I've carefully read the man page for, I see that it will
do most -- if not all -- that we require. I didn't see a few things, though,
and I'd like some insight into how to do these things.

  1) Where can I specify the paper size for the map? For example, my HP
DeskJet 2500C can handle (US) sizes A and B; actually, up to 13" x 19". I
didn't see a "size" option.

  2) What do folks do for a north arrow? If someone has a collection, is it
available to the rest of us?

  3) If I read the man page correctly, I can pre-defile such things as the
title block, neat line and north arrow, and have them included in the
instruction file each time. Of course, I need to prepare four copies: two
paper sizes at each of two orientations (portrait and landscape).

  I'm sure that I'll come up with more questions as I dig into using this
module, but these floated up right away.
