ok - so you could manually edit the @page values for specific parts of a book after calibre has added them e.g. by editing the epub with sigil.

but next time you run the book through calibre - say to get a .mobi version - it's going to re-insert the default code into every file ?

or am I misunderstanding, still ?

( I did partially test this - I removed all the @page stuff from a book with sigil , saved , then re-converted epub to epub with calbre , & saw that it has all been put back again. i did epub to epub to that I could re-examine the output file code. For real, I'd be wanting to do e-pub to mobi. I did not test the effect of altering some of the margin values in some of the files only though )
