[texhax] LaTeX Page Regestration Problem

Have my book manuscript all set, but can not figure out why the margins for
left & right are reversed, with the wide margin on outside & thin margin
inside. Also, the print on front & back do not align - when looking at outer
edge of a page, the type of the even side is about a quarter of an inch shy
of that of the odd side and about 1/8" higher. 


I am hoping that there is a simple solution, my wife who's a scientist
initially set LaTeX up for me, but she can't figure it out. So, I contacted
several LaTeX support Forums and a type setting expert agreed to fix the
problem for a fee. I sent him a snippet of my project and he added some crop
marks (of questionable value to me at this point), and then put me on hold.
I have not heard back from him and it appears he doesn't know how to solve
the problems.


Managed to get everything else looking decent - 650 page memoir with 149 eps
pictures! Want to print some presentable drafts without these problems,
though. The paper is 8.5 X 11 and the problem is visible in DVI. Here is how
it's set up now: 

\documentclass[final, leqno]{book} 
\usepackage{amsmath, amssymb, amsfonts} 


\title{------- } 

\author{-------- \\ 
{\small\em \copyright \ Draft date \today}} 




Copyright $\copyright$ 2005 by -------- 




\pagestyle{headings} \pagenumbering{arabic} 




% \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Index} 





Thanks for any help,
