Newspaper page numbering
Modern newspapers have two-part page numbers consisting of a letter followed by one or more digits. Page numbers in a new section of the paper start with a new letter; the digits portion is reset to one.
Persons of a certain age from smaller towns may remember all pages of a paper being numbered sequentially, without regard for section breaks.
This article would be a good place to identify:
- Which newspaper started the two-part numbering scheme.
- When they introduced it.
The quality of this article can best be described as in the region of the "spherical and plural". to paraphrase Howard Carter, the supposed victim of the 'Mummy's Curse'. Can we please have a typesetting expert rewrite this guff.126.96.36.199 (talk) 10:58, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
