Topic: html code for PDF rotation

I'm definitely a newbie when it comes to coding and such. I've written a Perl script that takes my Cadence schematics and turns them into PDFs. I then create html code that calls the PDF and places it in its own frame. The problem I'm running into is that I use ps2pdf to create the PDFs, and I'm not sure of a way to get it to display as 11" x 8.5" rather than 8.5" x 11". I figure there must be something I can add to the html, like a transform command of some kind, but I'm not sure how to do it. Is there an option with ps2pdf to make it come out the way I want? Help!

Also, the postscripts that Cadence produces are hideously colored. Is there html code I can include to make the PDF b&w rather than color? A ps2pdf option possibly?
