Another way of skinning this particular cat works without needing to
split chapter files (on Frame from 7.x anyway).
It boils down to adding particular parastyles to the
UnstructMasterPageMaps table on Reference pages and selecting Apply
Master Pages when you Update the book. Whenever the Update sees the
first parastyle, it changes the Master page used to your Landscape; and
returns to the standard Left/Right Masters when it sees the second
We use it on Single-sided books with excellent results by adding two new
paragraph styles (StartLandscape and FinishLandscape). I think it might
be more difficult with Double-sided docs.
In the FM 8 help, the full instructos are in "To assign a master page to
body pages on which a paragraph tag appears".
Two down: only George to go!
