Do you have access to Adobe Acrobat? (If not, download the trial
version for 30 days...)

1) Open your document with pdf distiller. It will create a pdf out of
the ps file.
2) Crop the pages so that you get even pages showing.
3) Print that file TO THE PDF PRINTER (sorry the caps but I want to
make the point)
4) Open the generated pdf and export all pages.
5) Rename (use a dos batch file) those pages to something that shows
their being even.
6) Repeat for odd pages.
7) Create pdf from the exported pages.
8) Send me a postcard.

++Hector C.

PS. I know it works because I use this method (minus the even/odd) to
get rid of footnotes/magin notes and I still get a searchable pdf.
