>i am more confused than EVER after reading:
Proof that all simple systems are doomed to complexity. But you
do have to make things like envelopes, and these require
different paper sizes to make a bit of room and edges to gum
things up. And so on.
And it looks as though the piece, despite bearing the UK suffix,
is written by an American; 'meter', Sir, meter? The word is
Metre. And the first diagram could have been a lot clearer [i.e.
the two A4 sheets could each have had 2 and root 2, rather than
looking like a break in the rule!].
It mentions the A B and C ranges, though I thought the French
description added a D range. Anyhow, I struggle to see a
mathematical relationship between the A, B and C size, as though
they were established by trial and error...
