Great! Thanks!

Ahh, the wonderful world of local standards and conventions :-)

Actually, in the few Danish (yeah, I'm a Dane :-S) technical and 
scientific books I own the principle is the same as you describe for 
Czech; but I have adapted the English tradition, which I like better, 
for the manuals produced at work, and have had no complaints so far :-)

Would it make any sense to make a collection of localized 
initial.page.number and select a specific one with a parameter?

I wouldn't be surprised if, e.g., most Western European countries follow 
the same tradition.

Thanks again!
