My last "answer" is here, but it was unfairly converted to a comment :-D.

I have problem to be neither asked nor answered.

enter image description here

\def\xport{%
    \rm X%
    \kern-.17em\lower.7ex\hbox{P}%
    \kern-.20em\lower.2ex\hbox{O}%
    \kern-.50em\lower-1.0ex\hbox{R}%
    \kern-.07em\lower-.09ex\hbox{T}%
}
\xport

Notes

  1. preview package
    • ignores \pagecolor{} and paper size.
    • needs -D10000 option to get a tight output.
    • cannot work with animate package.
  2. standalone class uses preview package internally so it does the same behaviour.

Thanks Hendrik. I need pdf output only. So TikZ is more appropriate for me?

@Thanks Stefan. I am also reading the TikZ manual now for the details. I think Tikz has better structured and syntax than PSTricks. :-)

Thanks @pluton. However, it does not work for twoside documents; even and odd numbered pages should be symmetrical.

@jan, try change the preamble by inserting twoside option into the \documentclass optional argument and change \lipsum[2] to \lipsum[1-20]. See the result. :-)
