$I have a small dilemma and I was hoping to get some feedback about headers and footers on landscape pages. Our manuals are written in portrait format, but there are a couple of pages that need landscape orientation. The headers and footers on that landscape page are in landscape to match the content's orientation. Do you think the headers and footers on landscape pages should be in portrait to match the rest of book or landscape to match the content?
$Thank you.

I recently did an internal annual report that had headers and footers the way you describe, and it does work.

My personal preference is for headers and footers on ladscape pages that match the portriat orientation of the rest of the document. I think it gives the document a more "unified" look.

But I have seen it done both ways.
