Something like your second suggestion should be fine. In addition I would either put a comment at the bottom of the page before before each removed un-numbered illustration page saying that an un-numbered page with an illustration was removed, or put a list at the end of the book saying after pages x, y, and z, unnumbered pages with illustrations were removed. Putting everything at the end is simpler and similar to what we are supposed to do if there is a group of unnumbered pages with illustrations and captions in the middle of a book. In that case we are supposed to put all the captions at the end of the book with a note saying the captions are from illustrations removed from between pages a and b.

Hi,
What do I do with unnumbered pages in the middle of the book.  For example, I 
have page 12 with text, an unnumbered page with an illustration, followed by an 
unnumbered blank page, then page 13 with text.

My first idea is to label the unnumbered pages as [page unnumbered in the book. 
Illustration deleted].  However, in the back of my mind, I recall something 
that Bookshare requires all pages to be numbered (except short children's 
stories).

My second idea is to ignore the existence of the unnumbered pages and just have page 12 followed by 
page 13.  The "illustration removed" and "blank page" do not really contribute 
to the book.

The third idea of renumbering the pages to include the unnumbered pages would 
require renumbering the table of contents as well.  In addition, people with 
different copies of the book would not be able to refer to the same page.

What would you suggest?
