If we set force-page-count to end-on-even, a page must be added, so that the last page is numbered as 38. If we set force-page-count to end-on-odd, no action needs be taken. If you use initial-page-number attribute and a value of auto (the default) on the page count, this should normally result in the output needed. It is simple and reliable. 54 55 Do not assume that an actual formatter will follow a particular method of forcing the page count, as in adding blank pages. An implementation may elect to use a different strategy to satisfy this constraint; and this may result in an unexpected blank page or no blank page where you would expect one.
There are also two other properties that I will talk about that introduce elements of internationalization. 1 Page Numbering The initial-page-number property fixes the page number for the first page of the page-sequence to which it applies. The values of the property and its interpretation are listed as follows: auto If this is the first page-sequence, the initial page number becomes 1.

When combined with the similar injunction placed on the simple-page-master, it means that if you want page borders, you will have to do fairly convoluted things with block formatting objects. You may also need to control the along-edge dimension of the four outer regions. The degree of control is limited, but you can specify how the regions overlap at the corners. You may specify a value of true or false for the precedence property on the region-before or region-after.
