Sounds like an approach, though I don't have any idea how that could be
accomplished given the different layout engines.
However, I fear that too many tweaks exist in application code because
of all those "in my Excel|Word|PowerPoint it is a pixel taller/smaller"
complaints. While the casual user maybe could be convinced that now we
do it the right way, for forms and legal or professional documents this
may indeed be a problem, especially if a print-out suddenly consists of
less pages or forms aren't lined up with pages anymore.
