OK, but Herbert reported (and I have no reason to disbelieve him) that 
"[a] lot of the dvi viewers cannot show the rotations".  Now admittedly 
"drivers" <> "viewers" but if Rodolfo requires viewing rather than 
printing, then the limitation which Herbert has reported is of some 
relevance, is it not ?
