<book-page-count> Book-level Page Count
Total number of pages in a work in print; by convention, each page or partial page is counted as one. Electronic-only works do not traditionally have page counts.
The book count may be used in two ways:
- as an EMPTY element, with the @count attribute holding the number of items counted; or
- with content, which can indicate additional information about the count. For example,
a <book-count> value of
“vi+330” might indicate that there are six (vi)
pages numbered in Roman numerals (pages i to vi) and 330 pages numbered in Arabic
numerals (pages 1 to 330) for a total of 336 pages, so the value of the @count attribute could be 336:
Inside the <counts> container element are the counts of various components in the book or book part: the generic count element <book-count> (for which the @count-type names what is being counted) and the specific named counting elements: the <book-fig-count> is the number of figures, the <book-table-count> is the number of tables, the <book-equation-count> is the number of display equations, the <book-ref-count> is either the number of references or (more properly) the number of citations in the bibliographic reference list, the <book-page-count> is the total page count, and the <book-word-count> is the number of words in the work.
The <book-page-count> cannot be used inside citations (<element-citation> or <mixed-citation>); instead use the element <size>.
