Hello Karl,

Thanks for your answer.

It seems (I am not really sure) that the extra-margin is about 1cm (1
inch = 2.54 cm). Well, in any cases it does not matter so much if it is
1 or 1.5 cm. So let's say 1 cm of extra margin

Now a A4 paper is 21cm*29.7 cm
Imgine you take 1cm of extra margin
Then you have 20cm left for the document
You set the margin as 2cm on the left and 2cm on the right (This is just
an example, I don't really know the protocol)
Then it means that the margins would be either 3 and 2 or 2 and 3. It
depends if it is an odd or an even page.

Does the margin vary if the format selected is @smallbook? I am not
really familiar with texinfo but isn't there a file where such things
are defined for the whole system?
