Hi William,
Firstly, yes, it would be good to put a number on those unnumbered pages.
Secondly, there is no need to have the page number at the same place on every
page. If the numbers are there, on a line by themselves, Bookshare’s tools will
find them.
Thirdly, I’m not aware of any correct format for the page numbers. I’m not even
sure what that means. If you mean whether they should be centered on a line, on
the left or flush on the right, I don’t think it matters, as in my answer to
your second question. If you mean something else, I have no idea.

Some books don't print a page number for every page. For example, one book I
read did not print a page number if there was a full-page illustration on the
page. Should I add it?

Some books place the page number in a different place on the page depending on
circumstances. For instance, I am scanning a book of short stories. The page
number on the first page of a story is centered on the bottom line of the page,
while the page numbers for all other pages are on the top line (left or right
side). Should I move the "oddball" page numbers to match the rest?

Just out of curiosity, is there a "proper format" for page numbers? If so,
what is it? I see a reference to it in the help sections, but not what it is.
