With the ebooks I generate myself (using pandoc), I have a single page count for the entire book.
Ebooks that I purchase off the Kobo store have a separate page count for individual chapters, which is handy for books (should I carry on reading or just go to sleep?) and even more attractive for short story collections. It's an effect I'd like to replicate in my own ebooks.
I understand that Kobo uses its own custom 'kepub' format, an extension of epub 2. Is what I want possible with vanilla epub? Preferably in such a way as will work on a range of devices, and that will 'stick' when run through kindlegen.
