Is this a function of the reader's system or the system that renders the
pdf.  I thought the actual fonts used were enclosed in the file.  I'm
not 100% sure though.

0.5pc?  I think that's a pica which is
  1 PostScript pica = 4.23333333 millimeters

I don't think the borders are that thick--at least not on my system.  My
estimate is about 1 mm.   Are you sure that's not the margin?

Where is the border specified?  Perhaps we could do some preprocessing
for the pdf.
