In landscape what it does (if not using reflow), is to “cut” the page in 2, having from 3 to 5 lines “superimposed” between half’s, or if you want , the last 3/5 lines are greyed out in the first half, and are the same 3/5, still greyed out in the second part.

For the sizing, what’s mandatory is the height of the text, so if the page has too much weight then width, it “cuts” in half the way I describe above, and the width fits accordingly, in this case maintains more or less white space, even if you “cut” all of it with a tool before putting it in the reader.

The screen is more or less 4x3 (800x600), so If you have a page 10x5, in landscape it’s going to be 5x2.5, and thus the 2.5 are filled with white until they become ~ 3.4 (or something like that, that respects the ratio 4x3).

Its’ not exactly like this because the reader as always a black bar (bottom in portrait and left side in landscape), who eats a bit of space and thus make my numbers not exact.

Best,
