Cool. Be sure that the HTML you output is still Lynx-friendly, though, or
you're going to get a *lot* of mail about it. ;-)

Not directly. By design, the exporter APIs just expose the document
structure. Any information about how the columns and pages actually got
formatted resides in the View. I haven't looked at those APIs in detail
recently, but I suspect it'll take quite a bit more work to get at that

We do still need to store explicit paper sizes in the document format (right
now, they're all hardwired at 8.5x11" portrait in the source instead), but I
suspect that's not what you're looking for.

Again, this sounds more like a View-level issue (where issues of zoom
factors and screen resolutions come into play).
