And the inevitable reviewer comment, "why is there a blank page?" when
a chapter ends on a right page and there's the blank page before the
next chapter begins on the right page.
To be clear, my personal preference remains proper recto/verso
(odd/even) pages. But if I were again preparing traditional
book-looking PDFs with a tool such as FrameMaker/Word (vs. my current
SSG--static site generator authoring to product only html), I'd
probably eschew tradition. But then I'd likely put the page numbers in
the middle or something so it didn't look like recto/verso done wrong.
(And I'd just go with page numbers from "1" on the cover to n, without
the traditional roman numerals for the "frontmatter" with the first
chapter starting on "1".)

Redundancy I guess, why have one more page layout than you need?

It's a good question, but I always wonder what the downside is to keeping left/r
ight pages?

I'm just wondering if any of you have a good reason for keeping the traditional
odd/even page formatting when your only deliverable is a pdf file. It doesn't fa
cilitate online reading in any way, and even if people print out double sided it
shouldn't matter, in my opinion.

We are working on a new page layout and I questioned the need for a different ri
ght and left page, my boss seemed uncertain so I would ideally like to go back w
ith some resources/examples to back up my intuition.
