The many helpful comments in reply to my previous query inspired me to 
search the Internet-world for suppliers of better-quality papers for 
Inkjet Printers.

And I ended up at Officeworks, Fyshwick.

They offer a great many papers from 9 different suppliers - enough choice 
to totally befuddle me.

However, the following supplied information is worth flagging for comment:

The normal paper weight of copying paper is 80 gsm (gram per square 
meter?). However papers up to 200 gsm are available.  Is there any merit 
in using heavier papers?

The meaning of "a ream of paper" appears to be related to the paper 
weight rather than the number of sheets!


HP is one of the listed Officeworks suppliers.  One of the grades offered 
by HP mentions the following features:

Hewlett Packard (HP) Everyday Copy Paper A4 80gsm Rm/500

    * High Performance, Mutlifunction Paper for Laser and Inkjet 
Printers, Copiers and Fax Machines.
    * Quality Tested to **Resist Jams** in Printers and Copiers.
    * 500 Sheets - 80gsm.
