I admit that I am not quite sure what I am doing. I spend a lot of time
creating legal documents using Word. Word has a nice legal template. I
am trying to use LaTEX but it isn't easy. It is too bad that LaTEX
doesn't have a native "legal" document class.

Anyway, what I am trying to do is get the Chapter name, actually the
"Article" name and the article number and title in the left side
heading. I can get the article's number but not its title.

Second, and I am not sure if this is possible, in the right side
header, I want the section name & number, plus the subsection name and
number ONLY if there is one. The way I have it configured now, I get
the section repeated twice if there is no subsection. The subsection
number should be printed on a line below the section number, which surprisingly is actually working..

I would really appreciate it if someone can tell me where I can find
out how to accomplish this. I need to have this approximately 50 page
report completed by this Tuesday.
