No doubt. I used Acrobat reader 5.1. I wonder if 6.0 would be more
accurate.

I just got a Postscript module (cheeeep on eBay) -- original HP equipment --
for my HP LJ4. I just printed (using copy command from command line)
letter.ps and here's what I see:

Barcodes begin 7mm from both right and left edge of paper
Barcode width is 11mm
Top Ballot ID is 8mm from top, and 11mm from left/right
Bottom Ballot ID is 9.5mm from bottom, and 11mm from left/right

Should I be using a different sample? You said, "I modified it," but maybe
I don't know where "it" is.
