You *might* be able to do something with an IF field in the header/footer area
that would display/remove a frame or textbox. But if it would work at all it
would be very tricky to set up.

Better might be an IF field that would insert the entire letter body from an
outside file (If in combination with IncludeText). Rather than specifying
margins, set the left and right indents for the paragraph styles to make it
look like it's a different margin.

Your other choice would be to set up two completely separate letters, and use
a filter to pick up the data.
