A cheaper option is to purchase ClickBook from Bookmaker. This cheap
(like maybe $50 USD) utility allows you to create your documents as
normal, and then print out two up so that they pages match up
correctly when bound as a book/booklet.

Let me know if you need more info. I use this utility all the time
with 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" booklets, and I'm sure there is no reason it
wouldn't work for the legal size pages you need. This option is a lot
more viable, also, if you are not using DocuTech systems.
