I'm not familiar with the MS macro package, but the man package
I worked with 15-20 years ago does a top-of-page routine.  You
can take the page number, check for even/odd, and alter the page
offset accordingly.  Just make sure you do it before anything
gets sent to output storage for post-processing (i.e. before
any vertical positioning occurs).  This probably means putting
it at the start of the top-of-page macro, or redefining the macro
in your file(s) if you don't want to edit the ms macros themselves.

Thanks to Raph and Ted for their help in my last question. Now I have another one. I need different left and right margins on odd- and even-numbered pages using the ms macros. This is dealt with PO and LL number registers, but I somehow need to alter them according to whether a page is odd- or even-numbered. I suppose I need to write a trap to do this. Are there any implementations of this already available somewhere? I am currently looking at macros used in production of the UTP book. Thanks.
