[FX.php List] OT: US window envelopes, window position on US letter paper

In my experience, there can be different window sizes and locations on  
a #10 envelope. There is not a single standard. Some #10 window  
envelopes even come with two windows, one for the addressee and one  
(upper left) for the return address to show through - both addresses  
from the paper inside.

I would suggest having your client's US staff measure the envelopes  
they are actually using and provide you with the window size and  

Hope this helps,
