I think the misunderstanding is that you Rob talk about an attribute in 
the stored document, while Andreas is talking about a runtime property 
of the loaded document.

The attribute in the stored document of cause always reflects what the 
user has set as print range before the document was stored.

When the document is loaded, this value is used to initialize the 
print-range runtime property. That property may be modified be the user. 
If the document is printed, then this value may be considered, but it is 
never the original value stored in the document that is considered. It 
may however happen that the runtime print-range property still has the 
same value.

So, I think you both are not in disagreement, and I actually agree to 
what you both say.
