For the purposes of automatic page numbering, you should continue your
practice of keeping all blank pages.  You do not need to write the words
"blank page" as Cindy points out.  However, the continuation of page
numbering is very important.  Here is what I would recommend:
At the top of the blank page write the pae nmber and press enter  twice.  So
your page would appears as follows.
Page break
page number
new line
new line
page break
This will allow the pagination to continue.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] opinions on blank pages wanted

~Hello Everyone,
Sometimes in the book I'm validating there's a blank page after a chapter.
Page breaks are there one just below the other. I've been placing a blank
line under the page break, writing, blank page on the second line and
leaving another blank line beneath. I thought the stripper might delete my 2
The other question is whether you think I should write a page number on the
page. That's an oxymoron if ever there was one, because the blank page would
now contain the words blank page and after a skipped line, a page number.
Some blank, huh? 
In the book, that blank doesn't have a printed number, but it has been taken
in to account on the following page where the chapter begins. for example,
last page of chapter is 80, blank page, first page of next chapter is 82.
I'm asking because I have this bleary notion we're supposed to account for
all pages. I'm afraid if I don't write a notice  that there's a blank page
and assign it's number, the uploading program might think I've left pages
Is that extra page break enough to account for the blank page? 
I've been using my judgment on this detail, but wonder what the rest of you
do or if there's a right way to process these blank pages.
Thank you in advance.
Always With Love,
