The culprit that made page numbering revert to 1 was this code:
Preceding it was this code, which may or may not have contributed to the "corruption" of the document:
Line #: Off
Once I deleted both codes, page numbering was fixed.
I first discovered the same problem in another, later document, and am very happy to have thought, finally, of going to Reveal Codes. These rogue codes crept in when I pasted something into the document from the internet or, in the 2008 case, from TextEdit. (It was April Fool's Day, too....) But go to opt-F2 and the problem is easily solved. Just more testimony to the robustness of WP. Tom
