I have to agree with Elsi. Page numbers were fine when books were only printed on paper so the page numbers were pretty much consistent. Then page equated to the amount of text printed on a standard size paper page. With ebooks page numbers make no sense. There is no consistent page size to be a standard. We need to change the standard from being based on the display technology to being based on the actual text. As Elsi says locations are absolute in relation to the text. The display is irrelevant. People may not be used to it yet but it makes a lot more sense.
