... the margins should be as with book.cls, shouldn't they?
-- you might measure and mail the margins.

Many years ago, some printers did strange things
so you had to play with \hoffset to get the same
margins on different printers. The problem cited
above might be solved the same way, without

As to "camera ready": I have recently seen some
.tex files, especially what margins were set, and
compared it with the ready book (my job is to make
another book in the same style.) I found that the
publishers chose their own margins, irrespective
of the margins they received. (Indeed, I have the

the margins that I found set in the files.) So forget
