I understand you point, now.  If the document's first page is left, since
the declarations in the :first pseudo-class do not override those in the
:left, there would be a page number on the first page.  I will amend the
example as you suggest.

@page :left { @bottom-left-corner { ... /* left page numbers */ }}
@page :right { @bottom-right-corner { ... /* right page numbers */ }}
@page :first { @bottom-right-corner { ... /* empty footer on 1st page */ }
		   @bottom-left-corner { ... } }

If you have any further comment on this topic, you have 7 days, until 14
February 2004, to respond.
