WIDTH which is what is being negotiated by the fax machines,  its a 
common question that is confusing, but in most cases the logs say A4, 
but the faxes are letter, legal or whatever they really are supposed to 
be length wise.

In general though, its nothing to worry about.

In my case, it is something to worry about because each "page" prints on 2 sheets of paper at the fax machine. It appears to be printing at an A4 length. The page fills the first sheet and then a little more on the next sheet. As you and Lee have both politely said, the width is the same.
