[XeTeX] Specifying papersize with XeTeX

Thanks Pete

--papersize=a5 was just a quick fix since I hadn't expected the printer to 
have any problems (he hasn't for the last ten years but apparently there's a 
new machine...).  I'll look into this properly but someone else has already 
mentioned the papersize \special, which I'm sure is what I'll need if 
cropmarks are starting to cause some printers difficulty.

I wouldn't use this command line option. I'd use a
\special{papersize=...} which also records these dimensions in the XDV
output file, helping xdvipdfmx to choose the proper paper format.
