To cut printing costs, we've created our user manual in a modular format,
with each section rather than each chapter beginning on the recto, and
individually numbered. We solve the blank page issue by designating the
final verso page for notes (if it has no text). Generally the reaction has
been positive.

Having watched this discussion this morning I just have to
add my $0.02
worth.

I personally favour the new chapter on the right hand side
convention.
Hey, its convention and I am confortable with it. From the
discussion
to date one can assume so are lots of other people.

I believe it is important to create a document that produces
very little
"noise" for the reader. Putting new chapters on the left is
different
from the norm. It will be noticed - "noise".

While there will be those readers where it is noticed and
forgotten
there will be other readers where it will be totally
distracting. Is it
really worth alienating them?

From my personal stand point, I favour blank pages. I
***hate*** those
"This page is intentionally left blank" messages. It is a
pet peeve and
it drives me to distraction.
