> As far as I can tell there is nothing that prevents word processors like Word, Google Docs, Adobe Acrobat Pro, LibreOffice, etc. from including page breaks indicators in their export to EPUB, either on by default, or as an option.

That’s a pretty big “what if”, but hypothetically if they did that in future:

  *   Export to EPUB would be ok (or out of scope) in an EPUB reader;
  *   They would need to have a special/different export-to-HTML feature for it to be rendered in a browser;
  *   If this were a requirement, there’s a pretty good chance they would include a ‘jump to page X’ feature in that export, without the author having to do anything.

I suspect there’s more to it in practice. We are hoping Matt will be able to join us at the halfway point of today’s meeting.
