Down to these choices, I'm quite happy with either. However, I think I
read English adjectives a bit differently than Arthur does. I tend to
think of the adjective closest to the noun is the one most emphasized,
not the one that comes first in a list of modifiers.

But I definitely think that the word 'paper' needs to be in there.
On-screen summaries don't cut it, but might be suggested without
indicating paper explicitly.
