PDF page size

I'm a little confused about the recommended PDF page size. In a number of posts on this site a size of 120x150 is advised, yet on the official site A5 which is 148x210 is mentioned. Which is best and why the differance

Thanks

Actually the best size is about 122 or 124x150mm if you want to fill the whole screen width of the iLiad. Thats about the actual screen size. The discrepancy to A5 ratio comes from the always present pageBar on the bottom of the page. It shows pagenumbers and icons.

It's somewhere around there: I get 349 x 424 PostScript points (approx 123 x 149.5 mm) myself. A document at that size, with 0.5 pt rulers just 'inside' the edges displays without almost any visible whitespace on the outside (except lower edge, of course, with the icon bar).

But I see that the right edge on my unit is very slightly askew: I do see whitespace outside at the very bottom, but not at the top, which suggests that the *visible* screen area may be a little off square.
