XSL 1.1 defines a special element, fo:page-citation-last, to address this exact problem. The element is already implemented in Antenna House (4.0+) and RenderX XEP (3.8+; placed in the proprietary namespace). It might make sense to use it in the stylesheets when extensions for these two processors are on. The obvious benefit is that it becomes possible to count blank pages as well. (With the current approach, if a blank page is appended to keep the parity of the page sequence, its footer is likely to read "Page 18 or 17" :-) ). Regards, Nikolai Grigoriev
