No no no, if there's an extraneous blank page between 2 consecutively numbered 
pages, please delete the extra blank page, because leaving it in would also 
throw the numbering scheme off.  Sorry I didn't make myself clear!

DIV {

Carrie, For example, if a book has a blank page 
between 49 and 50, how would numbering that page help? It seems to me you would 
end up with two page 50s. I'm sure you don't want us to change the print page 
numbers. What don't I get here?  Jill

  chapter titles, adding page numbers to blank pages

  


  
  Hi gang,

Someone asked me to speak about protecting chapter 
  titles:
If there's a page number at the top of each page, there's no 
  problem, everything's fine.  If there's no page number at the top and the 
  first word on the page is not 'chapter,' then there's no problem, 
everything's 
  fine.  But if the very first word on a page is 'chapter,' then the 
  stripper thinks that it's a header (instead of the chapter title) and 
promptly 
  removes the line. To avoid this, just add a line with 'chapter' on it above 
  the REAL chapter title, and the stripper will remove the extraneous line, and 
  everything's fine, the sun will shine on everyone!

About blank pages in 
  the middle of a book:
Please add the appropriate page numbers to all the 
  blank pages in the middle of your books.  Blank pages at the beginning, 
  between the title page, copyright page, acknowledgments, and all that, are 
  okay.  But there's one type of Braille machine (Kurzweil?) that deletes 
  blank pages, so immediately the whole numbering scheme gets thrown off.  
  Adding page numbers to blank pages prevents this from happening, and it also 
  lets people know that they are not missing a page of text from the 
  book.

Actually I think most people do a very good job at handling both 
  these situations, so I'm just blathering in general, not trying to criticize 
  anyone in particular.

Carrie
