Setting Page Margins in OOo, NeoOffice [Draw, Writer]

When creating a book layout in Writer using Page Styles, sometimes it looks quite nice when you have a solid colour or graphic in the background, and a white border around the edge of the page. This exports quite nicely to PDF.

To achieve this look, simply go Format >> Page and edit the page margins to achieve the desired thickness.
