Thank you, Harry, for a factual reply to my query. Very interesting, and I appreciate learning something new. I especially appreciate an answer to a direct question rather than being lectured to about which method is better.

It is not that I "need" page numbers, but that I happen to prefer them, which is why I was curious as to the difference.
