Hi Jess! Yes, the running headers are things like the title and author that appear at the tops of pages. Actually, very occasionally they appear at the bottom, but then they're footers, but I muddy the water, sorry. Sometimes the running header will also be the story or chapter title. I always put page numbers at the tops of pages. In print books they can appear at the top, bottom, and sometimes even along the side margin of the page. That varies from book to book. Since placing the page number above chapter headings to make sure that they don't get stripped seems to work best for protecting chapter headings, it just makes sense to me to place them all at the top of the page. Sorry that wasn't definitive, but since the placement of the page numbers in print books isn't absolutely consistent, there isn't a hard and fast rule. Good luck. Hope you're having fun!

Hi all, For those of you that do not know, I am validating a book that has two page numbers on some pages and none on some. I recognized that the pages that had two numbers were meant for the pages that had none. For instance, in the attached file, the first page has pages 12 and 13 on it, but no page numbers on the second page. It would be logical for both pages to have numbers. I found out that I can fix this problem. Now that I know that, my next question is: can I place the numbers either at the beginning of the page or at the end? In addition, I saw a posting on this list about running headers. Are they things like the title and author?
