You might want to check out Adobe Framemaker. However, I'm not too
certain if Framemaker has a layout capability or is simply more of a word
Another possibility would be LaTeX and TeX. These are more precisely
known as typesetting programs. I'd guess they would give you the same
control (possibly more) than a page layout editor.
Let us know what you find out.
