Well, the way I would handle this is to change the document to single column
layout on 8.5 x 7 portrait pages with mirror margins and print it onto 8.5 x
paper using the "2 pages per sheet" option that is available on either the
LaserJet 5si or the LaserJet 4000N printers that are available to my pubs
That way, you have discrete pages so there is no problem with the numbering.

Of course, not all printers support 2-up or 4-up printing, and I'm pretty
you'd run into trouble if you need to generate PDF of the double-page
