I'll have to agree with Matt -- it is a very good PDF, although, IMO,
having it compressed defeats the purpose a bit...  Especially compressed
with gzip -- people might want to read it before installing Cygwin, you
know.  Since it only compresses to about 190k (from the original 390k),
I'd guess having it up there uncompressed would do more good (unless web
space is a problem).

I'm not too keen on pure TeX, hopefully someone will correct me if I'm
wrong.  LaTeX, for example, uses the \textwidth and \textheight dimensions
for the text size on the page, and \topmargin and \@themargin for the
offsets from the top left corner of the page...

I'll try to come up with a way to change those margins only for code
listings (in a few weeks, though).  It would help if you send me
(privately) the .tex file(s) used as input to pdfjadetex...
