Topic: Positioning Text in a PDF document

I have a dilema. I am having problems positioning text inside my pdf file.
According to the pdf spec their are 72 user space units per inch. So to position some text lets say 4 inches up, by 4 inches over. This would actually be x,y coordinate 288,288. Or 4*72. But when I print the pdf file out, it actually measures out less then 4 inches up. Is there anything I'm doing wrong in computing my x,y coordinates?
Now I am taking into account that at x,y coordinates (0,0) starts out... actually not at the absolute bottom of the page or at the absolute left of the page. But 0,0 starts out less then .5 inch up and .5 inch over. So I am starting out measurment after the margin.
Thanks for any help anyone could give!!!!
