Hi again,

is there another approach (I didn't find an appropriate one in the  
documentations) to define a text block with a width larger than the  
actual text width? such a text block should be able to go over several  
page and be able to handle left and right pages (that is at the right  
page I want 2cm more for the right side and at left pages I want 2 cm  
more for the left side)?

I appreciate any hint where to look for.
