Incredibly, Pages ’09 does not seem to support mixing landscape and portrait-oriented pages in the same document, even when using layout breaks. The best workaround I could find is to insert a text box and then rotate it 270°. If you need the landscape-oriented text to span multiple pages, you can link text boxes across pages (select the first text box and then click on the blue arrow below the rotated text box to add the next text box). One drawback of this approach is that the text in a full-page, rotated text box is difficult to edit without first rotating the text box back to its original orientation.
