[NTG-context] inside and outside margins (vs. 'left' and 'right' margins)

Hi Otared,


Thanks.  Two problems here:

- the \inoutermargin and \ininnermargin commands add text to the margins.  I
can set it to no text, but I don't see why they would be necessary to define
inner and outer margin size.
- the location=doublesided looks like what I was looking for, but it doesn't
affect anything! (Nor does duplex.) Every page still has the same margins
irrespective of whether they're even or odd.

James
