A little off-topic but I hope people don't mind.

I've just taken a close look at my university's regs and it appears that 
we still require students to submit their MSc or PhD theses 
double-spaced and single-sided.  I was wondering if more enlightened 
institutions have progressed to the stage where students can submit 
single-spaced and double-sided.

If you have regs that are less wasteful (especially if you're at a UK 
institution), could you drop me an email saying so?  I'll use it as 
evidence to help drag us towards the 21st century -- and maybe save some 
trees -- and update the LaTeX style that many of our students use.

Many thanks in advance.
