Under the "Numbering" category in the Insert Field window, you'll find a
selection for SectionPages, which is just like the NUMPAGES field code
except that it counts pages in individual sections. Then use Insert
to put a section break between the title pages and the first page of
and you're home free. In fact, if you select "odd page" when inserting
the section break you don't have to explicitly force a blank page for
back side of the title page (I mention this because if you have a hard
page break and then insert a section break, you'll wind up with at least
one extra blank page when you print).
