PLEASE don't use anything but straight through if you are offering them as
pdf files online. Otherwise it is tricky to know intuitively what page to
print out for eg pages 4.12 to 4.23. Please don't waste my time with
numbering that is different.

That means starting at one and not using roman numerals for preliminary

Perhaps you could number paragraphs. But that only means something to users
if they are familiar with chapter 4 and know it well as the chapter on
certain subject matter.
