Lissi, I don't recommend putting the page numbers at both the top and bottom of the page. It isn't something that I would expect publishers to do, so I wouldn't expect Engineering to have considered the possibility when creating the Stripper . You can try it, but be willing to live with the results if it fails, and download the book once it makes it into the collection to see whether or not it worked so you don't continue to use the method, or recommend it, if it didn't work. The method which has been found to work when the page numbers are always at the bottom of the page is to put a false header at the top of a page with a chapter heading. Many people use the word chapter, but I like to use the book's title, since that is something the Stripper is used to finding in a header, and it's also something that wouldn't confuse a member if it somehow gets overlooked by the Stripper. I have seen an example where someone pasted the word Header at the top of every page for the Stripper to remove, and it was left in, which will probably drive members crazy if they download the book and cause someone to rescan it later. You should be safe using the word Chapter though, as long as you strip the other headers and only put it on the page with the chapter heading since several volunteers are using that method , and I haven't seen an example where it failed.

I know that when page numbers are at the top, except for pages where new chapters where the publisher has placed them at the bottom, we're encouraged to move them to the top making them consistent, all at the top. But, If all the page numbers are at the bottoms of pages, should we put a page number on a page which starts with a chapter name, or even a single chapter number with no word like chapter at the top as well, meaning there'd be the same page number at the top and bottom of that page. In other words where numbering is at the bottom, page numbers would appear twice on pages with chapter numbers at the top, like page 134 at the top and 134 again at the bottom. If I just move the page number to the top of those chapter headed pages, then the numbering would be inconsistent as all page numbers wouldn't be at the bottom any more. I hope my question makes sense. I'm not arguing about where to place page numbers. I just want to get it right so I'm trying to clarify. I have two books on the verge of being uploaded and both have page numbers at the bottoms of the pages, so once I have an answer to this question, I may need to do some number tweaking before uploading.
