This was all printed using eroff (a third party DWB package for 386/ix that
includes HPlaserjet and postscript support) on a Panasonic Laser Partner.
I have spent about 60 hours (and a full box of paper) going over all the
documentation to ensure that it formatted correctly for the reduced size

	(BTW-Someone asked if I really printed all 200,000 pages on my laser
	 printer - the answer is no way jose.  I just printed the original
	 and had the printer do the replicating)

The price, including shipping, is as follows:

				Virginia	Continental	Hawii/Alaska
						   US		   Canada
Manual set			$42.60		$41.00		   $46.50
Manual set with binders		$55.64		$53.50		   $59.00
