When I started with generating pdf documents I didn't understand the
landscape stuff, too. But obviously it is as described:

- mediabox with portrait parms
- rotation with 90 degrees
- everthing has to be rotated with a rotation-matrix Tm or cm command

I'll send you a simple sample document, so that you'll have a suitable
example for your implementation.
