<p>This is an exciting part of the story, but this paragraph
<separator d:pagenum="26" />
spans two printed pages. One would most logically use the 
separator element to indicate that break. Is this usage -- 
the insertion of a separator element inline -- legal?  The 
paragraph which began at the end of pagenum="25" is continued
on this page, and should be treated as a paragraph, regardless
of the separator.  However, the consumer needs to be aware of 
pagination for use in citations or as the start and end points 
of an assigned reading.  Can one use the separator element in 
such a use case, or is the page author limited to use of a 
generic element, such as span, with a role assigned to it?</p>
