The first option can be made much more robust and flexible with a bit more work 
in the beginning, too. 

Instead of just rotating body pages ad hoc as needed, create rotated custom 
master pages (LandscapeLeft and LandscapeRight might be good names). In FM 7.x 
or higher, you could assign these master pages based on specific paragraph 
tags, but IIRC, FM6 didn't have that feature. There are, however, scripts 
and/or plugins that will do it. If this is a one-time thing, it probably isn't 
worth it, but if there is a recurring need, automating this would be a good

With some of us, it just depends on our level of caffeination. Too early is not 
good, but too late is risky, too. ;-)

But without intending any criticism of your question, I can help with the 
archive search problem. Don't use the FrameUsers site, use Google. You can 
restrict a Google search to the FrameUsers list by entering a search string 
like this: 

        landscape pages site:lists.frameusers.com 

Try that one, and I think you'll find several of the 76 hits quite relevant.
