Footer removal

High, I'm pretty new to all this. Here's my problem: I'm converting a book from a pdf. I managed to automatically remove the header easily enough since it's always the same thing, but the footer is different. It displays the page number... Now, since I'm going to be using this book on a kindle and the pages will be defined on the device depending on the size of my fonts, it seems to me like this "forced" page break is a problem (furthermore, it often happen right in the middle of a paragraphe. So it goes like:

"...and Mathieu walks PAGE 6

to the counter and says..."

When I look in the HTML version, it looks like this:

<br>
<b>Page 4</b><br>
<hr>

Now, what I'm wondering (and I'm sure there a very simple way to do this I'm just not aware of) is: is there a way to tell calibre to delete every occurrences of this despite the difference in the number written after the "page"? (wow... does anyone understand my question?)

Once I get this out of the way, I'll have a great time working with the file in Sigil and formatting it to my heart's content. I'm just hoping there's a way to avoid removing all those "page 15-16-17" manually...

Thanks!
