The problem is solved setting the Page Scaling option to `None' in Adobe Reader
print dialog window, as suggested by Yuri Robbers.

But now, another problem: the print comes out very pale. I tried all the
possible settings and options in print dialog window with no result: please,
can anybody help also with this matter?

I wish to avoid using MS Word and to use TeX in its place to print my
documents, but to do that I need the print to be all right whatever the printer

Thanks in advance,
