Beware: the cropping is done in a crude way: the whole page is 
included, including the invisible parts; leading to a much larger 
attachment than is actually needed. And if you do this with the default 
computer modern, I personally find it hard to read from the screen. If 
you're using Lucida though, everything should be perfectly readable.
