    What kind of software is good for formatting?

    I have a small book I want to POD privately. So I'm trying to format the pages like the published trade paperbacks.

    I've tried Microsoft Works and OpenOffice. I still don't know how to format the header. OpenOffice lets me mirror page numbers, but I have no option to skip a header on chapter pages and early pages. The only option I have is to include a header for every page other than the first. This is getting frustrating. Works keeps the page number on one side or the other, so that's out. What can I do?
