Hi Werner and Jim,

Prince 3.0 supports counter-reset for the page counter by applying it to
the page on which the beginning of the element falls. So if the property
is set on a <div> that spans several pages, the page on which the element
begins will have the page counter reset.

This approach to scoping seems to match the intentions of the user, who 
will usually want to restart the page counter from the beginning of a book 
or section, not at the end or on every page of a book or section.

Best regards,


YesLogic Prince prints XML!
