To do...?

If it helps, explain it in physical book form:

Are you trying to recreate headers (chapter title) + footers (page numbers)? And swapping between them on left/right pages?

Or something like that?

Because that kind of information is generated and displayed automatically by the device/reader.

Remember: Ebooks =/= Print books, and there are some things you just don't transfer over. Headers/Footers being one!

Side Note: And do you have a physical device to test your ebooks on?

A Kobo, a Nook, a Kindle, etc.

I think some of these questions would be squelched once you mess around with an ebook for a few minutes on an actual device or reader.

Is there any device that even follows that? Yes, I know it's buried somewhere in the EPUB specs... but reality...
