why the paper size is incorrect in PowerPoint 2003

when changing the size of the powerpoint presentation from on-screen view to A4 for printing, via Page Setup, although I chose A4 (or any other size) the width and height displaied is wrong - A4 for example shows as 19.05cm x 27.51cm. Any help, greatly appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It's accounting for a 1 inch margin on all sides.
For example, a presentation setup for 8.5 X 11 inches paper size is always 7.5 X 10 inches.
If you want it "all the way to the edge", you'll need to set a custom page size.
